Academic Style Marker Ontology Design
As any other genre, academic paper can be characterized by its own specific rules and fitches. The authors assume that academic style fitches called in this research “style markers” can be modelled by means of ontology engineering. The article is aimed at describing the academic style markers ontology design and its practical using. The designed ontology is divided into two levels. The first level provides information about linguistic terms and the second level consists of style markers, which were suggested by experts in linguistic. It is assumed that two tasks will be solved on the basis of developed ontology. The first task is generating lexical-semantic templates, which is used to identify the list of markers in a text. Due to ontology approach and Domain Specific Language (DSL) technologies applying users can be able to extend and modify marker templates. The second task is developing an expert system rules for text style enhancement.
