The application of clustering methods for automatic taxonomy construction from text requires knowledge about the tradeoff between, (i), their effectiveness (quality of result), (ii), efficiency (run-time behaviour), and, (iii), traceability of the taxonomy construction by the ontology engineer. In this line, we present an original conceptual clustering method based on Formal Concept Analysis for automatic taxonomy construction and compare it with hierarchical agglomerative clustering and hierarchical divisive clustering.
