In studies related to the construction of domain ontology, the acquisition of concept meaning has not received enough attention. According to the definition of the concept, the acquisition of concept meaning is a requisite task in the process of ontology construction. This paper studied the automatic acquisition of concept meaning based on HowNet and researched the problem of meaning acquisition for complex terms and synonym removal. Grounded on concept meaning, this paper put forward a sememe suffix tree algorithm and applied it to the construction of ontology taxonomy. Compared to traditional algorithms, this method is more efficient and comprehensible. This paper implemented the methods to the domain of ethnic minorities, and the experimental results showed that this paper is referable.
