A multidatabase system provides integrated access to heterogeneous, autonomous component databases in a distributed system. In order to gain integrated access to a multidatabase system, semantic heterogeneities have to be detected and resolved. That is, the multidatabase system must interpret and integrate the meaning of the information and identify semantically equivalent or related objects. The approach presented in this paper uses WordNet as linguistic knowledge to represent and interpret the meaning of the information, to integrate the information, and to give users efficient access mechanism to the integrated information.
