This work investigates the process of selecting, extracting and reorganizing content from Semantic Web information sources, to produce an ontology meeting the specifications of a particular domain and/or task. The process is combined with traditional text-based ontology learning methods to achieve tolerance to knowledge incompleteness. The paper describes the approach and presents experiments in which an ontology was built for a diet evaluation task. Although the example presented concerns the specific case of building a nutritional ontology, the methods employed are domain independent and transferrable to other use cases.
