Dear all,

  the LIDER project has developed guidelines describing how to discover 
and exploit language resources published as Linked Open Data.

The guidelines are summarized here: 

As a motivating example, imagine a company developing sentiment analysis 
and opinion mining software that has a working system for the English 
language and wants to port the system to also support German. The 
company wants to find a corpus that is annotated at the sentiment level 
and extract a first seed lexicon of German subjective expressions with 
their polarity (positive, negative, neutral).

How could Linked Data support them in finding an exploiting a German 
sentiment lexicon easily?

According to our guidelines, they would perform the following steps:

  * Search and discovery: the company would enter the query "sentiment
    corpus German" into LingHub and reach the following page:
    It would get two results. Clicking for instance on the usage review
    dataset it would reach the following page:

  * Licensing: They would would check the license
    http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/by/1.0/ and see that it is
    compatible with their purposes.
  * Distribution: The company would understand from the metadata page of
    the usage review dataset that a download is available at
    http://data.lider-project.eu/usage/usage.nt.gz and that a SPARQL
    endpoint is available at: http://data.lider-project.eu/usage/sparql
  * Extraction: Using the following SPARQL query

SELECT ?string ?polarity
     ?phrase <http://persistence.uni-leipzig.org/nlp2rdf/ontologies/nif-core#anchorOf> ?string ;
             <http://persistence.uni-leipzig.org/nlp2rdf/ontologies/nif-core#lang> <http://www.lexvo.org/page/iso639-3/deu> ;
             <http://www.gsi.dit.upm.es/ontologies/marl/ns#hasPolarity> ?polarity .

they could easily extract a list of German subjective phrases together 
with their polarity:


The company could then easily integrate these results into their workflow.

Most importantly: they would accomplish this by using only open and 
non-proprietary technologies and web standards, and building on linked 
data principles.

Any feedback on the guideline document is more than welcome!

Kind regards,
