You most probably don't need the reasoners to process *unstructured
data* such as natural language text content. Text analysis is achieved
thanks to Enhancement engines that can rely on the EntityHub to as a
domain specific knowledge base.

If the names of your entities are very specific to your domain (not
ambiguous) then the TaxonomyLinkingEngine coupled with a dedicated
referenced site in the EntityHub that indexes your knowledge base
sounds like the right approach.

To index your knowledge base within the EntityHub you can take example
on the following examples (for DBpedia and DBLP respectively):

However I don't have any usage example for configuring the
TaxonomyLinkingEngine and Rupert who is the original developer of this
module is off for a couple of weeks AFAIK.

Note: reasoners are useful to process *structured* data (a.k.a.
knowledge): converting assertions already expressed in one RDF
vocabulary (e.g. into another (e.g., checking
integrity constraints, reifying transitive and reflexive relationships
prior to indexing...
