Modern search engines provide users with suggested query completions. These search suggestions are often ambiguous in nature and could refer to any number of homonyms. Previously we used a static ontology built from data in Wikipedia to address this issue. Here, we present a method for dynamically building an ontology of "famous people" based on mining the suggested completions of a search engine that are produced in response to partial user search queries. This is combined with data from DBpedia. We use this ontology to provide disambiguated search suggestions within a dynamic version of our previous Ontology-Supported Web Search system.
