Intuitively absurd but logically consistent sets of statements are common in publicly available OWL datasets. This article proposes an original and fully automated method to point at erroneous axioms in a consistent OWL knowledge base, by weakening it in order to improve its compliance with linguistic evidence gathered from natural language texts. A score for evaluating the compliance of subbases of the input knowledge base is proposed, as well as a trimming algorithm to discard potentially erroneous axioms. The whole approach is evaluated on two real datasets, with automatically retrieved web pages as a linguistic input.
