An Ontology for Accessing Transcription Systems (OATS)


Moran, Steven (2009). An Ontology for Accessing Transcription Systems (OATS). In: First Workshop on Language Technologies for African Languages (AfLaT 2009), Athens, Greece, 31 March 2009 - 31 March 2009, 112-120.

Abstract

This paper presents the Ontology for Accessing Transcription Systems (OATS), a knowledge base that supports interoperation over disparate transcription systems
and practical orthographies. The knowledge base includes an ontological description of writing systems and relations for mapping transcription system segments to an interlingua pivot, the IPA. It includes orthographic and phonemic inventories from 203 African languages. OATS is motivated by the desire to query data in the knowledge base via IPA or native orthography, and for error checking of digitized data and conversion between transcription systems. The model in this paper implements these goals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
