Abstract

Untrained users in the development of ontologies are challenged by the formal representation languages that underlie the most common ontology editing tools. To reduce that barrier, many efforts have gone in the creation of Controlled Languages (CL) translatable into ontology structures. However, CLs fall short of addressing a more profound problem: the selection of the most appropriate ontology modelling component for a certain modelling problem, regardless of the underlying representation paradigm. With the aim of approaching non ontology expert's difficulties in selecting the most appropriate modelling solution, we propose a Natural Language (NL) guided approach based on a repository of Lexico-Syntactic Patterns associated to consensual modelling solutions, i.e., Ontology Design Patterns. By relying on this repository, untrained users can formulate in NL what they want to model in the ontology, and obtain the corresponding design pattern for the modelling issue.
