This paper describes a new syntax that can be used to write OWL 2 ontologies. The syntax, which is known as TEX-OWL, was developed to address the need for an easy-to-read and easy-to-write plain text syntax. TEX-OWL is inspired by LATEX syntax, and covers all construct of OWL 2. We designed TEXOWL to be less verbose than the other OWL syntaxes, and easy-to-use especially for quickly developing small-size ontologies with just a text editor. The important features of the syntax are discussed in this paper, and a reference implementation of a Java-based parser and writer is described.

Abstract

This paper describes a new syntax that can be used to write OWL 2 ontologies. The syntax, which is known as TEX-OWL, was developed to address the need for an easy-to-read and easy-to-write plain text syntax. TEX-OWL is inspired by LATEX syntax, and covers all construct of OWL 2. We designed TEXOWL to be less verbose than the other OWL syntaxes, and easy-to-use especially for quickly developing small-size ontologies with just a text editor. The important features of the syntax are discussed in this paper, and a reference implementation of a Java-based parser and writer is described.
