9 Building an ontology

What we'll do

In this chapter, we shall look at how to actually build an ontology with the Amine LexiconsOntology tool.

The ontology won't have a lot of fancy bells and whistles; some of those are saved for a later chapter.

What you should have

We assume that you have a running Amine LexiconsOntology tool, and that you have gone through the New Wizard.

Now you should have a completely blank ontology, with "Universal" as the root (or top) node and "Relation" as the Relation Hierarchy root:


We start by adding the type "Physical".
