This chapter presents an overview of techniques for semi-automatic extraction of semantics from text, to be integrated in a Semantic Work Environment. A focus is placed on the disambiguation of polysemous words, the automatic identification of entities of interest, and the annotation of relationships between them. The application of these topics falls into the intersection of three dynamic fields: the Semantic Web, Wiki and other work environments, and Information Extraction from text.
