Ontologies


From a theoretical point of view, ontology is the metaphysical study of the nature of being and existence. In practice, an ontology is normally viewed as a formal representation of all semantic objects and their connections in a Universe of Discourse. Mapping these semantic objects onto language units (words, phrases, text segments, etc.) is the task of semantic processing in NLP.
