Basics about Ontology entities

Basics about state verbs

Welcome to Leire, a Lemon lint remover

This application allows you to read a Fuseki triple store containing Lemon triples generated with Lemon Patterns, the most typical patterns of the Lemon model. These patterns allows you to create ontology 'lexicons', that is, lexicalizations of ontologies.

The idea is that you can generate inconsistencies in the lexicalization process, even more if you are in a collaborative work. E.g. you can speficify that a given noun has some plural form, but some collegue can specify that the noun has a different plural form.

Also allows you to get listings with the most relevant data about the nouns, verbs, propositions… in your data set.


  • Multilingual (English, Spanish, German). Indeed this is enhirited from Lemon (and Lemon Assistant), which allows you to create lexicons in these three languages for any ontology.
  • Inconsitencies supported: (1)different gender, singular/plural for the same iontology entity, (2) entities with less than 2 instances, (3)plural or gender specified in some ontology entity, but also unspecified in another ontology entity (this is a warning).
  • This web application can be used in tablets or smartphones (also in desktop machines).

Technical details

  • This application uses a R package named 'Rlemon' oriented to join linked data and linguistic grammars (gf).
  • This web application is reactive, that is, there are no 'submit' buttons. For an introduction to reactive web applications visit the Shiny homepage.
