An Interpreter and a Type Inference Engine for Controlled Natural Language Descriptions of Ontological Concepts

  • In this work, an Attempto Controlled English based interface will be devised to describe Description Logics concept constructors in natural language. Based on phrasing information that is attached to ontological concepts, roles, and individuals it will be possible to enter natural language descriptions of sets of ontological individuals. These descriptions will be transformed into OWL Abstract Syntax, which allows for inferring the most specific common type of the described ontological individuals.
