Ontologies are widely used and play important roles in applications related to knowledge management, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, etc. Measuring the semantic similarity between ontological concepts is necessary in applications that use ontologies. This paper presents a survey of approaches to compute ontological concept similarity. A taxonomy showing the classification of approaches is introduced. The advantages and disadvantages of each approach are discussed.
