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.
