All,    (01)

When I read this question this morning, I must say I was unclear on what was
intended by an "ontology extraction tool".  I thought we might get a wide range
of answers - as we have.    (02)

If you mean, are there tools that can identify and extract entities which have
been associated with a predefined ontology -- that's one thing.  If you mean,
are there tools that can tell you what your ontology should be -- that's another
task.  And, if you want to discover how entities relate to one another in a
particular context, that's yet another task.  And, there are other
interpretations of "ontology extraction".    (03)

It might help if we had a better idea of the context for the question.  It may
be that people do not disagree, they're just talking about different things.    (04)

Best regards,
