Hi all,

converting linguistic or lexical resources to RDF also entails the creation of an ontology which defines the semantics of linguistic terms used in the resource.

There are many ways how to represent this in an OWL ontology. From an engineering point of view, it is desirable to set up a set of best practices for ontology building. Ideally, this would increase the interoperability of the resulting ontologies and thus also of the linguistic/lexical resources on the Semantic Web.

In order to increase the awareness of this issue and to provide an initial outline including links and examples, I set up a wiki page some time ago:


This is meant as a starting point for further discussions and contributions on this topic.
