In this paper, we propose a procedure of discordance detection in an actual legal code, that is the regional ordinance of Toyama Prefecture, Japan. In this study, we expand the notion of inconsistency to the discordance including antonyms based on an ontology, and precluded the conventional negative connective. We have implemented the system that converts XML logical formats to Prolog, and has inspected the whole code.
