The objectives of Semantic Information Modeling are to enable:

  • Interoperability of systems and information integration, through
    • System independent information models

    • A standardized formal language for expressing information, knowledge and requirements

    • A universal data exchange format

    • Natural language independency and automated translation

  • Applying logic reasoning on data, knowledge and requirements, for
    • Intelligent searching (Queries)

    • Computer augmented design, fabrication and maintenance

    • Computer augmented verification of requirements

This website introduces:

- A methodology for Semantic Information Modeling.

- The definition of Formal English, Formal Dutch and other formalized natural language variants.

Registered users have access to

  • A wiki guide on the development of Semantic Information Models in Formal English using the Gellish Semantic Modeling Methodology.

The webshop offers:

  • Taxonomic Dictionary-Ontology
    The taxonomic dictionary-ontology is a downloaded together with a search engine application and a user guide. It can be installed on Windows PC's to search for terms and relation types and to navigate through the network of related concepts.
    The database consists of the concepts, vocabulary and definition that defines Formal English or Formal Dutch (Formeel Nederlands).
  • The book 'Taxonomic Dictionary of Relations' provides definitions of kinds of relations and their denoting phrases and inverse phrases. The relation types form the core of the definition of the Gellish Family of Formal Languages. The relation types are also suitable to be used as standard kinds of relations (properties) in RDF/OWL based data exchange.Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.
