ELEXIS (H2020-approved European Lexicography Infrastructure, 2018-2021)
The field of lexicography is continuously shifting to digital media – with effects on all stages of research, development, design, evaluation, publication, dissemination, marketing and usage – and modern lexicographic content is becoming increasingly interoperable with numerous computational domains and solutions as part of large-scale knowledge systems and collaborative intelligence.
At the same time, new interlinked linguistic resources are being created to meet requirements for language technology (LT), leading to better federation, interoperability and flexible representation. In this context, lexicography constitutes a natural part of the Linguistic Linked (Open) Data (LLOD) scheme, currently represented by WordNets, FrameNets, and LT-oriented lexicons, ontologies and lexical databases. New attempts are underway to embed lexicography in a theoretical framework as part of developing a research paradigm and common standards for interoperability with LT systems and applications.
The aim of this workshop is to explore the development of global standards for the evaluation of lexicographic resources and their incorporation into new LT services and other devices. This is the second workshop organized by GLOBALEX, a young constellation of the major continental associations of lexicography, this time in cooperation with the Global WordNet Association and the newly established ELEXIS project. The focus of GLOBALEX 2018 is Lexicography and WordNets. It seeks to promote cooperation with related fields of LT for all languages worldwide, and is intended to bridge existing gaps within and among such different research fields and interest groups.
The workshop will feature the main topic of Lexicography and WordNets, as well as these topics:
Lexicography in the age of globalization and digitization
Lexicography-assisted language learning and translation
Lexicographic integration of NLP tools and corpora
Lexicography and LT for under-resourced languages
