Reusing Linguistic Resources: Tasks and Goals for a Linked Data Approach [chapter]

Marieke van Erp
2012 Linked Data in Linguistics  
There is a need to share linguistic resources, but reuse is impaired by a number of constraints including lack of common formats, differences in conceptual notions, and unsystematic metadata. In this contribution, the five most important constraints and the tasks necessary to overcome these issues are detailed. These constraints lie in the design of linguistic resources, the way they are marked up and their metadata. These issues have also come up in a domain other than linguistics, namely in
more » ... e semantic web, where the Linked Data approach proved useful. Experiences and lessons learnt from that domain are discussed in the light of standardisation and reconciliation of concepts and representations of linguistic annotations.
