News search using conventional methods based on keyword search often does not return results with the containing contents what does not meet users’ desires. We aim to develop a news aggregation system, called BKSport, focusing on sport domain supporting the semantic search function.

In this research, we propose a novel method to transform natural language questions to semantic queries based on SPARQL to query RDF data in the semantic data store. Experiments are performed on a set of questions of various different categories, and the results show that the proposed method provides high precision.
