Ontology An ontology defines the common terms and concepts, or semantics, used to describe and represent a knowledge domain. An ontology can range in expression from a taxonomy (knowledge with a minimal hierarchy or parent/child structure), to a thesaurus (words and synonyms), to a conceptual model (with more complex knowledge), to a logical theory (with very rich, complex, coherent and meaningful knowledge).
