Dear all

Expressive vocabularies/models have been introduced that allow 
describing morpho-syntactic properties of the linguistic realization in 
various languages as well as their specific relation, e.g. stating 
whether one is an abbreviation of another, whether two lexicalizations 
in different languages are literal or more lenient translations of each 
other etc. For this purpose, the*LIR model *[1] allows representing 
relations between lexicalizations of classes and properties in different 
languages, thus adding a cultural and linguistic layer to ontologies 
that is crucial for applications requiring ontology-based access across 
languages. In the MONNET project [2], LIR has been unified with 
*LexInfo* [3] to produce a more comprehensible model for the enrichment 
of ontologies with a linguistic layer called *lemon *[4].

I would suggest to follow the W3C Ontology-Lexica Community Group ...

KInd regards
