Sweetening Ontologies with DOLCE
In this paper we introduce the DOLCE upper level ontology, the first module of a Foundational Ontologies Library being developed within the WonderWeb project. DOLCE is presented here in an intuitiveExpand
Sweetening WORDNET with DOLCE
TLDR
The DOLCE upper-level ontology is introduced, which is inspired by such principles but with a clear orientation toward language and cognition, meant to be conceptually more rigorous, cognitively transparent, and efficiently exploitable in several applications. Expand
WonderWeb Deliverable D17. The WonderWeb Library of Foundational Ontologies and the DOLCE ontology
TLDR
The endurants/perdurants distinction introduced in the previous section provides evidence for the general necessity of having two kinds of parthood, and a basic primitive relation is an immediate relation that spans multiple application domains. Expand
The WonderWeb Library of Foundational Ontologies Preliminary Report
TLDR
The endurants/perdurants distinction introduced in the previous section provides evidence for the general necessity of having two kinds of parthood, and a basic primitive relation is an immediate relation that spans multiple application domains. Expand
Understanding top-level ontological distinctions
TLDR
A set of primitive relations are presented that are believed to play a foundational role in the development of a useful top-level ontology and help to understand and clarify the nature of many common ontological distinctions. Expand
Conceptual analysis of lexical taxonomies: the case of WordNet top-level
TLDR
An analysis and an upgrade of WordNet's top-level synset taxonomy are proposed, which is meant to be more conceptually rigorous, cognitively transparent, and efficiently exploitable in several applications. Expand
Restructuring WordNet's Top-Level: The OntoClean approach
TLDR
The result is a “cleaned-up” WordNet, which is meant to be conceptually more rigorous, cognitively transparent, and efficiently exploitable in several applications. Expand

Towards a Computational Ontology of Mind
TLDR
A first analysis of entities that play a role in agent technologies for information systems, mainly focused on mental objects and their characteristics is given, able to fit and integrate the foundational ontology DOLCE (a Descriptive Ontology for Linguistic and Cognitive Engineering). Expand
