WO17: Semantic Lexicons
This paper outlines current developments centering around the lexical-semantic database GermaNet and its applicability both within language engineering tasks and on the Semantic Web. From this perspective, representation and standardization are considered to be crucial issues as regards compatibility and interoperability with other languages resources. Representation variants of lexical data, eg. XML-based formats, enable various web applications and data exchange. Furthermore, visualization tools for exploring ontologies can be adopted and enhanced.
