We present a transformation scheme that me- diates between description logics (DL) or RDF-encoded ontologies and type hierar- chies in feature logics (FL). The DL-to-FL direction is illustrated by an implemented offline procedure that maps ontologies with large, dynamically maintained instance data to named entity (NE) and information ex- traction (IE) resources encoded in typed fea- ture structures. The FL-to-DL translation is exemplified by a (currently manual) trans- lation of so-called MRS (Minimal Recur- sion Semantics) representations into OWL instances that are based on OWL classes, generated from the the type hierarchy of a deep linguistic grammar. The paper will identify parts of knowledge which can be translated from one formalism into the other without loosing information and pa...
