Summary of the paper

Title Dbnary: Wiktionary as a LMF based Multilingual RDF network
Authors Gilles Sérasset
Abstract Contributive resources, such as wikipedia, have proved to be valuable in Natural Language Processing or Multilingual Information Retrieval applications.This article focusses on Wiktionary, the dictionary part of the collaborative resources sponsored by the Wikimedia foundation. In this article we present a word net that has been extracted from French, English and German wiktionaries. We present the structure of this word net and discuss the specific extraction problems induced by this kind of contributive resources and the method used to overcome them. Then we show how we represent the extracted data as a Lexical Markup Framework (LMF) compatible lexical network represented in Resource Description Framework (RDF) format.
Topics Lexicon, lexical database, Multilinguality, Language modelling
