Hello,

I've been trying to find the underlying differences between the different 
types of OWL languages i.e: OWL DL, OWL Lite and OWL full.

Are all of these languages forms of Description Logic? As far as I can gather 
OWL Lite is less expressive to suit users who want to incorporate semantics 
into their applications without the over complexity of OWL DL and full.

Does OWL lite use different forms of axioms than full or DL

If someone could set me straight on the differences I would be very grateful!
