Abstract: Relations with other objects are sure to exist in one object such as the persons, things and the enterprises. The structure related to these objects is called a social network. In recent years, the extraction of object relationships using web corpora is researched to visualise a social network. This paper aims to extract object relationships including the direction of the relation considering context information. In the proposal method, related words that are objects related to the object given as an input word are acquired at first. And object relationships between an input word and each related word are extracted. Moreover, the system that visualises related words and the object relationships as a correlation diagram is implemented. From the experiment for extraction of object relationships, the accuracy of the correct answer rate of 80% or more, was obtained by using the proposal method.

Keywords: object relationships; context information; social networks; visualisation; object extraction; visualisation; web objects; internet; input words; related words; correlation diagram.
