Recently, I've read this interview with Prof. Stevan Harnad.
He was the first author that has explicitly discussed the so called "symbol grounding problem".
In that interview he said that in recent works, he and his collaborators analyze dictionaries for determining the properties of the smallest number of words from which all the rest can be dened by words alone.
I haven't read these works yet. But this idea led me to think about a "minimal core ontology" that would support all concepts that are represented in dictionaries.
Of course, it is important to notice that Harnad talks about words/symbols instead of concepts. So, I don't know how useful his analisys for this purposes.
Also, I don't know how much this approach can be successful, due to the problem of defining concepts in the classical way (sufficient/necessary condicions).
