Abstract : In this paper we are interested in the choice of a knowledge representation formalism that enables the representation, manipulation, query, and reasoning over linguistic knowledge of the Explanatory and Combinatorial Dictionary (ECD) of the Meaning-Text Theory. We show that neither the semantic web formalisms nor the Conceptual Graphs (CGs) Formalism suit our needs, and justify the introduction of a new formalism denoted Unit Graphs (UGs). We thus introduce the fundamental concepts of the UGs mathematical framework: the Unit Types hierarchy and the Unit Graphs. We then show how one one may use them to represent specific aspects of the ECD.
