Yes, I'm willing to go with that.

Indeed, but (1) many sentences of this form are not about class-subclass relationships , and (2) many subclass relationships are expressed in other ways, and (3) not all assertions which can be thought of as expressing such a relationship are in fact best understood that way.
All the parsed results can be compared, and
No, it is absolutely nothing like making a genuine ontology.
It is only a domain-independent way to do it,
Forget the rest of this, as I *do* think that subclass relations are part of an ontology.
No, the problem is to find the ontological content in the free NL text. Such text contains all sorts of information, some of which can be possibly expressed as subclass relations, and a much smaller fraction of which can be usefully so expressed. But there are no simple heuristics for reliably recognizing such information based on the form of the NL sentences.
If you don't agree, then I don't know what is your
I'm sorry, but it is clear that you know almost nothing about the actual NLP field. There is no point in continuing this discussion. Read some textbooks on the state of the art on NL comprehension systems.

I suggest you read the article:
Ive read it, of course. But AI Magazine is to real research as Scientific American is to a publication in a professional physics journal. When Lotfi gets some actual results and publishes them, I might take some serious notice.
