Hello all,

In the framework of the Semantic Web deployment group I was to capture the issue on representing links between labels.
Using many contributions from the people of this list (thanks by the way for your mail, Mark) I wrote something on this problem. Input on it (cf forwarded mail) is welcome, I hope I have respected everyone's thoughts/proposals. Please remember it does not aim at addressing the global problem of having labels as individuals, it is just focussed on links between labels.




Hi all,

I have written on
a first attempt regarding the action:

> [PENDING] ACTION: Antoine to capture the issue on capturing
> relationships between labels [recorded in
> [50]http://www.w3.org/2007/01/22-swd-minutes.html#action04]

Perhaps the most important, concerning the action itself, is the
'motivation' part that gives example of such links between labels.
The 'solutions' part goes into discussion on ways to solve the issue,
inspired by the material found via [1]  and the page Alistair recently
wrote about Annotation Patterns [2].
Any further attempt to go into a solution in terms of SKOS model shall
be worked out in cooperation with the issue on annotations on labels, I

Agreed. So who can spot a monster?

In which case you need a skos:Term class.

BTW there was a reconciliary proposal by Dan Brickley to indeed use the 
more complex model but provide a rule set with which you can 
automatically convert to the simpler (current) model. But I don't know 
if that would be useful as the conversion would probably be difficult 
the other way around.

Look at all the places where WordNet is used :-)
A Term class basically means starting to use a model very similar to

See [1,2,3].
