  • Re: RDF and OWL

     During my recent visit to the KRDB Research Centre in Bolzano, Italy, Enrico Franconi introduced me to a book called "The Description Logic Handbook.  After a little more research, I found another book called "Description Logic Framework to Synchronize ORM Model and OWL Language" - published in 2012. I hope you find ...

  • Re: Displaying (syntactic) data type in verbalization of model

     Hi Karl, Earlier this week when we met in Bolzano, Matt told me that there is not much work left to do on the next release so he would get it out "pretty soon". However, he is working flat out on some urgent projects so "pretty soon" for him is probably "not soon enough" for the rest of us. Ken

    NORMA does not have a method for importing .imo files directly.  You can convert .imo files by following Terry's method as described in this post.http://www.ormfoundation.org/forums/p/407/1150.aspx Ken

  • Re: What is a fact?

    Hi Terry, Thanks for your clarification from which I infer that your view is that:   Propositions exist independently of any declarative sentences that may be uttered to assert the proposition. As a student of philosophy and logic, I have read many websites and books to find out what others have said about propositions and here are two ...

  • Re: What is a fact?

     [quote user="Terry Halpin"]I subscribe to one of the more popular viewpoints that treats propositions as extra-linguistic entities that are are always true or false (and hence truth-bearers).[/quote]  Hi Terry, Of course I agree that there are physical things in the world, such as those things that we call cars, houses, ...

  • Re: What is a fact?

     Hello Niels, I have no disagreement with the rules of propositional logic as shown in the document you linked to.

  • Re: What is a fact?

    Hello Niels, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. There was more technical work to do than I anticipated and there is still quite a bit more I have to do. However, I have done the urgent work so here is a short but considered response. Firstly the idea that two propositions that use different words have the same ...
