Modelling Lexicographic Resources using CIDOC-CRM, FRBRoo and Ontolex-Lemon

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Paper presented at SWODCH 2021, describing a new approach to the modelling and publication of lexicographic resources, including retro-digitised dictionaries, as linked data. This approach is based on the use of the CIDOCCRM aligned FRBRoo ontology together with the Ontolex-Lemon vocabulary and its follow up lexicographic module, lexicog. After introducing the TEI-based distinction between dierent views on lexicographic resources, we discuss Ontolex-Lemon and CIDOC-CRM and FRBRoo. Next, we look at some motivating use cases before introducing our approach. Finally, we model one of these use cases in more depth using this approach.
