In this paper we propose a new approach for automatic evaluation of relations in ontologies of restricted domain. In particular, we use various lexico-syntactic patterns with the aim of evaluating the class-inclusionand ontological relations that the ontology holds. Our approach focuses on a reference corpus for finding evidence of the relation validity. The approach is capable to provide an accuracy measure for each ontology evaluated, a value associated in some way with the quality of the ontology relations. This score is given with a certain degree of reliability, and it is obtained by comparing the results given by our approach against the evaluation of human experts and a baseline.
