Applying a semantic approach has improved performances in the context of the Arabic Question/Answering (Q/A) systems. This approach is based on the current release of the Arabic WordNet (AWN) ontology. The analysis of the results obtained in previous works has shown that extending the Named Entity (NE) content of this ontology is a promising technique in order to further improve performances. In this paper, we investigate through experimental results the impact of the AWN enrichment using the YAGO ontology which presents a large coverage in terms of NE.
