Modelling Multilingual Lexicographic Resources for the Web of Data: the K Dictionaries case
Research Areas
  • Artificial intelligence
Lexicographic resources can highly benefit from Semantic Web technologies, specifically, linked data technologies, since such resources cannot only become easy to access and query, but also easy to share and link to resources that contain complementary information, contributing to the creation of a huge graph of interlinked lexical and linguistic resources. In this paper, we present the methodology we have followed for the transformation of a lexicographic resource, namely, the Spanish dataset of K Dictionaries's Global series, from its proprietary XML format to RDF, according to the lemon-ontolex model, ade-facto standard for representing lexical information in the Web of Data. We describe in detail the original resource, the design decisions taken for the transformation process, the model chosen for the representation of the dataset, as well as the extensions made to the model to accommodate specific modelling needs of the original source. The core of the representation model is described in detail in order to illustrate the issues encountered and how they have been solved in this first prototype, which could serve to lay the foundations for future transformations.
