TEI-Lex-0 Workshop

TEI-Lex-0 Workshop: Developing a Baseline Encoding for Lexical Data

Date: 16 July 2018

Location: Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, Aškerčeva cesta 2, Ljubljana, Slovenia

TEI-Lex-0 is is addressing one of the main challenges in the process of creating interoperable lexical data, the lack of a common target transformation format for:

1. comparing existing dictionaries;
2. serving as an LMF-serialization tool; and
3. creating generic querying and visualization tools.

TEI-Lex-0 is not imagined as a one-size-fits-all schema, but rather as a community-agreed solution for tightening representational constraints so that the lexical data contained in the digital editions of existing and future dictionaries can be studied, repurposed and improved upon in various scholarly contexts.

Preliminary work on this important infrastructural topic has already been conducted in a cooperation between the DARIAH WG “Lexical Resources” and the WG “Retrodigitized Dictionaries” of the European Network for e-Lexicography (ENeL, COST IS1305): at workshops in Berlin (at the BBAW, 17 – 19 November 2016) and Vienna (at the ÖAW, 26 June 2017); as well as in the context of the Lexical Data Masterclass (Berlin, 4 – 8 December 2017).

The Ljubljana workshop is being organized by the DARIAH Working Group “Lexical Resources” in cooperation with the European Lexicographic Infrastructure (ELEXIS).

This is a by-invitation only event.

K Dictionaries & Lexicala Seminar: Lexicographic Resources for Dictionaries and NLP

Date: 17 July 2018, 10:00–12:30 (including coffee break)

Location: Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, Aškerčeva cesta 2, Ljubljana, Slovenia

K DICTIONARIES creates lexicographic resources for 50 languages and develops working tools for their processing and dissemination.

These resources have been used to compile monolingual, bilingual, multilingual and learner’s dictionaries, published in print and digital media by various partners worldwide.

In recent years, our resources have been redesigned into cross-lingual multi-layer lexical data, to serve also in NLP, linked data and other language technology applications and research.

The service name for our new operations is LEXICALA, and the data is now available in JSON and JSON-LD formats (in addition to XML) through a RESTful API.

The seminar will present an overview of these activities and related methodologies, featuring:

  • data macrostructure and entry microstructure (mapping the language DNA)
  • manual compilation, automatic generation and post-editing
  • translation and cross-lingualization
  • editorial and data processing tools
  • adapting to new formats and methodologies
  • accessing multi-layer lexical data through an API
  • working with lexicographers around the world
  • collaboration with industrial, academic and professional partners
  • student training and internship programs

The K DICTIONARIES team will include Yifat Ben-Moshe, Ilan Kernerman and Dorielle Lonke. In addition, there will be guest presentations by Arleta Adamska-Sałaciak (AMU, Poznań), Philippe Climent (IDM, France), Margit Langemets (Estonian Language Institute, EKI) and John McCrae (Insight NUI, Galway),
