Lege Feliciter: Using Structured English to represent a Topographic Hydrology Ontology
: The mathematical nature of description logics has meant that domain experts find it hard to understand. This forms a significant impediment to the creation and adoption of ontologies. A number of approaches are being taken to attempt to mitigate this problem. The two most common approaches are to either provide an English like syntactic veneer to OWL, or to provide a way to convert OWL statements to English to render them more readable.
