    Syntactic regularities are repetitive structures of axioms in the asserted form of an ontology. In this paper, we present a Prote ??ge ??- 4 plugin based on the RIO (Regularities Inspector for Ontologies) framework, which detects such regularities in ontologies using cluster analysis. The RIO plugin is an open source tool for visualising syntacticregularitiesinontologies;theusercanloadtheminProte ??ge ??- 4 and view clusters of similar entities, generalisations describing the clusters and abstracting axioms. The RIO plugin can be used for gaining an intuition about the embedded patterns in ontologies and deviations from these patterns.Availability: the RIO plugin is available for download from http: //
