I would say that an Ontology is [IMHO] more than just a Data Dictionary,
because it contains also (kinds of) relationships.  To me an Ontology is
conceptually more of a Thesaurus.  Does that work?    (01)

That's what you get when you incorporate Linked Data principles into
Ontology design.    (05)

An Ontology is (IMHO) very much a kind of Data Dictionary. I wait to be
convinced otherwise.    (06)
