I've noted that some efforts to use structured schema naming and design rules such as those used in the UN/CEFACTS' CCTS and subsequently OASISs' UBL do well at retaining precise meaning in specific contexts, in the case of UBL for those business transactions whose data must be exchanged between business partners. In lieu of a specific ontology that meets with across-the-board agreement for terminology used, the data representing a specific business need during a specific business transaction suits their needs just fine. |
I am not optimistic that a "general ontology" using formal or NL definitions can ever be reached using 100% agreement as the determiner of success.
This is just an idea, but I think that perhaps more specific contextual definitions where specifically-defined domains and ranges of values in a particular context may be obtainable. If specific ontologies could be agreed upon 100% for those of "general nature of content", "domain + range", and "context", then relate those together as Tania Touradache has in her engineering thesis, then perhaps you may have a viable direction. But I would agree with anyone that believes 100% NL agreement can ever be achieved, especially when used only as an annotation.
If it would be helpful, in light of John's comments, I might also suggest that if one could develop a framework whereby he could represent specific meaning of a term without using any other words at all, this would be the thought processes one must use in order to determine a solution to these problems.
