The explosion of data know-how has ended in big progress of web-accessible linguistic data when it comes to volume, range and complexity. those assets develop into much more invaluable whilst interlinked with one another to generate community effects.
The normal pattern of offering facts on-line is hence followed by means of newly constructing methodologies to interconnect linguistic info and metadata. This contains linguistic information collections, general-purpose wisdom bases (e.g., the DBpedia, a machine-readable version of the Wikipedia), and repositories with particular information regarding languages, linguistic different types and phenomena. The associated info paradigm presents a framework for interoperability and entry administration, and thereby permits to combine details from the sort of various set of resources.
The contributions assembled during this quantity illustrate the band-width of purposes of the associated facts paradigm for consultant forms of language resources. They hide lexical-semantic assets, annotated corpora, typological databases in addition to terminology and metadata repositories. The publication contains consultant functions from varied fields, starting from educational linguistics (e.g., typology and corpus linguistics) over utilized linguistics (e.g., lexicography and translation reviews) to technical functions (in computational linguistics, average Language Processing and knowledge technology).
This quantity accompanies the Workshop on associated facts in Linguistics 2012 (LDL-2012) in Frankfurt/M., Germany, geared up by way of the Open Linguistics operating workforce (OWLG) of the Open wisdom starting place (OKFN). It assembles contributions of the workshop individuals and, past this, it summarizes preliminary steps within the formation of a associated Open facts cloud of linguistic assets, the Linguistic associated Open info cloud (LLOD).
