In this paper we present an approach that combines multimedia reasoning and natural language processing for the semantic integration of automatic and manual image annotations based on domain ontologies. We discuss how to apply natural language processing to transform natural language descriptions and queries into an ontological representation that allows users to formulate formal semantics in an intuitive manner, without the need to cope with complex ontological structures and unwieldy user interfaces. Illustrative experimental examples demonstrate the added value.
