Abstract(in English) This paper describes methods of alignment between the noun part of WordNet and Goi-Taikei's Ontology and discusses comparison of their structure between the two ontologies, based on analyses of the alignment. The result of the automatic alignment shows that matching words in Japanese as well as in English is highly efficient in extracting correct matches. Analyses of correct alignments by hand illustrate that, in ontology alignment, it is not always possible to preserve relative relations between concepts such as hyponymy, meronymy or antonymy.
