I do not see any problem. More verbosely, I agree because ontolex:OntologyEntity is a subclass of semio:Reference, while ontolex:LexicalEntry is a subclass of semio:Expression, and the intended conceptualization of ontolex:denotes is totally compatible with that of semio:denotes.

In order to make things progress, I edited Philipp's ontology (attached with a versioned name) by adding axioms there are missing in my view. For the denotes issue I only added an owl:equivalentProperty axiom, by please feel free to collapse ontolex:denotes as you suggest.

More in detail, that's the list of axioms that I added, please tell me if I'm wrong:

# denotes issue:
ontolex:denotes owl:equivalentClass semio:denotes .

# adding ontolex:OntologyEntity (depicted abd assumed, but not in ontology):
ontolex:OntologyEntity rdf:type owl:Class .
ontolex:OntologyEntity rdfs:subClassOf semio:Reference .

# subclassing LexicalConcept as a type of semio:Meaning (no disagreement on my proposal, correct?):
ontolex:LexicalConcept rdfs:subClassOf semio:Meaning .

# subpropertying ontolex properties to semiotics.owl properties for complete alignment:
ontolex:sense rdfs:subPropertyOf semio:hasInterpretant .
ontolex:evokes rdfs:subPropertyOf semio:hasInterpretant .
ontolex:reference rdfs:subPropertyOf semio:isConceptualizationOf .
ontolex:concept rdfs:subPropertyOf semio:hasConceptualization .

also added some (already agreed but missing) domain and range axioms.

Yes, CNR is a member
