It is useful to label axioms and conjectures with self-explanatory names. This pays off especially when using a theorem prover with Hets or Ontohub, because then these names can be used to quickly select both axioms and conjectures (proof goals).


In DOL, axiom labels are written as follows:

. axiom %(axiom_label)%


In OWL, axioms can be annotated with labels, using an rdfs:label annotation. Protégé has an editing facility for this. These labels will be stored together with the ontology in any syntax.

For example, in OWL Manchester syntax, this looks as follws:

 Class: Woman SubClassOf: Annotations: rdfs:label "WomanSubClassOfPerson" Person
