Dear all,

  I have edited the following three requirements according to our 
discussions last week, trying to come up with a synthesis that we can 
agree upon:




Please have a look, I have some questions on these that I would like to 
discuss tomorrow.

For example, concerning the pattern:

NP<class>  sein [(AP<property>,)*] oder AP<property>:/Aggregatszustände sind flüssig, fest oder gasförmig./
        :flüssig a owl:DatatypeProperty;
                rdfs:domain :Aggregatszustand;
       :fest a owl:DatatypeProperty;
                rdfs:domain :Aggregatszustand;
       :gasförmig a owl:DatatypeProperty
                rdfs:domain :Aggregatszustand;

It seems to me that flüssig, fest oder gasförmig  can not be properties 
as they do not have arguments, to they?

So I see two possibilities:

1) Aggregatszustand is a class and flüssig, fest and gasförmig are 
nominals, i.e. Aggregatszustände \equiv \{flüssig\} \sqcup \{fest\} 
\sqcup \{gasförmig\}

2) aggregatszustand is a object property with can have the individuals 
ex:flüssig, ex:fest and ex:gasförmig as range

3) aggregatszustand is a datatype property with values "flüssig", "fest" 
and "gasförmig"

The sentence

/Aggregatszustände sind flüssig, fest oder gasförmig./

is in fact compatible with all of the above modelling, so which one do 
we choose when including the pattern in the lexicon-ontology model?

Further, I have added a new requirement:


We should discuss this one tomorrow in detail.

Please read through these as I intend to stabilize them tomorrow.

Looking forward to our talk tomorrow.
