Ontologies are explicit conceptualisations of subject domains, and this chapter examines the use and value of ontologies for knowledge acquisition. It takes three approaches to the exploitation of ontologies and examines them critically with respect to a number of issues, such as task-relativity, or the aim of providing tools and techniques that can be used (semi-)independently of knowledge engineers. We illustrate these ideas with four exploit ontological insights in the context of knowledge acquisition.
