FRED is a machine reading tool for converting text into internally well-connected and quality linked-data-ready ontologies in web-service-acceptable time. It implements a novel approach for ontology design from natural language sentences, combining Discourse Representation Theory (DRT), linguistic frame semantics, and Ontology Design Patterns (ODP). The current version of the tool includes Earmark-based markup, and enrichment with word sense disambiguation (WSD) and named entity resolution (NER) off-the-shelf components.
