Hi all,

http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-syntax/#Annotations

States:

"Various OWL 2 syntaxes, such as the functional-style syntax, provide a mechanism for embedding comments into ontology documents. The structure of such comments is, however, dependent on the syntax, so these are simply discarded during parsing. In contrast, annotations are "first-class citizens" in the structural specification of OWL 2, and their structure is independent of the underlying syntax. "

If it is true that functional syntax has a comment system, what is its syntax?  I couldn't find any reference to it in the spec, and from this thread it looks like maybe there isn't one:
