1. Research Purpose

Development of a controlled natural language and ontology based system for the structured data entry of medical narratives. Ontopath, a controlled natural language for medical narratives, is formalized in a syntactic level and an editor for Ontopath is developed in the Java-2 platform. The editor is designed to guide narrative data entry based on a given ontology. It translates the entered data into RDF which is a semantic web standard markup language.

    1. suggesting appropriate terms according to a given context for the efficient entry of medical narratives.
    2. run-time syntactic and semantic error checking with suggestion of possible corrections.
