Using BFO as its core, Fandaws (for Fact and Answer Web Service) is a natural language interface to allow users to create, explore, and modify a comprehensive ontology. Through users answering simple questions and BFO ontological principles, Fandaws determines where and how to modify its ontology. The resolved ontology can be graphically viewed, downloaded, or connected through an API. Fandaws has been pointed to various online dictionaries and has successfully processed over 100,000 terms.
