Lemon-aid: using Lemon to aid quantitative historical linguistic analysis


Moran, Steven; Brümmer, Martin (2013). Lemon-aid: using Lemon to aid quantitative historical linguistic analysis. In: Proceedings of the 2nd Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics: Representing and linking lexicons, terminologies and other language data, Pisa, Italy, 23 September 2013 - 23 September 2013, 28-33.

Abstract

In this short paper, we describe how we converted dictionary and wordlist data made available by the QuantHistLing project into the Lexicon Model for Ontologies. By doing so, we leverage Linked Data to combine disparate lexical resources – more than fifty lexicons and dictionaries – by converting the lexical data into an RDF model that is specified by Lemon. The resulting new Linked Data resource, what we call the QHL dataset, provides researchers with a translation graph, which allows users to query across the underlying lexicons and dictionaries to extract semantically-aligned wordlists.
