Abstract
The ways in which dictionaries are compiled and used have evolved dramatically in recent years owing to the processes of digitization. This evolution has found in the Web an optimal means to empower the visibility and usability of dictionaries. In this context, we witness nowadays increasing interest in the interoperability of linked data (LD) technologies for the development and representation of lexicographic data on the Web. In this paper we propose the notion of LD-native dictionaries as a natural next step in the evolution of lexicography. These future dictionaries could be LD-native and, as such, graph-based. Their nodes are not dependent on any internal hierarchy and are uniquely identified at a Web scale. We analyze the advantages of such an approach and identify its possible impact on the dictionary representation, compilation, and usage processes. Some challenges related to interoperability and data aggregation issues are also discussed.
