Dear Andreas and all,


As regards the second topic you are mentioning, I would like to point out that in META-SHARE, we have taken into consideration the issues you are mentioning – albeit improvements might be needed. I am giving you here the link to the component that best corresponds to your query – the link goes to the documentation of the original xml schema):

- application scenarios supported (e.g. sentiment analysis, content classification, ...)

foreseenUseInfo: http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Foreseenuseinfo 

- supported languages

languageInfo (http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Languageinfo) and lingualityInfo (http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Lingualityinfo) 

- topicality

There are various components for the "classification" information, depending on the mediaType of the resource, e.g. textClassificationInfo (http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Textclassificationinfo) & audioClassificationInfo (http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Audioclassificationinfo) 

- license, price model

distributionInfo (http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Distributioninfo) may include one more licenceInfo with speficic information on licensing and pricing

- used by (e.g. example use cases)

actualUseInfo: http://www.meta-share.org/portal/knowledgebase/Actualuseinfo


Any comments are welcome! And, if needed, I can provide further explanations.


Penny Labropoulou

Dear Philipp, dear all,


this is what I was thinking of, I'd like to write up a list like that,

is there a shared space we can collaborate on this? A GDoc?


Besides http://linguistics.okfn.org/resources/llod/ and http://datahub.io/dataset?tags=linguistics - are there any other collections of relevant linguistic sources you usually look up?


The second topic I was mentioning was a schema which describes linguistic resources from a pragmatic point of view, e.g.:

- application scenarios supported (e.g. sentiment analysis, content classification, ...)

- supported languages

- topicality

- license, price model

- used by (e.g. example use cases)


When classifying linguistic resources by that schema, one can find potential datasets quicker.


Is something like that already in place?


BTW: Is there a programme for MLODE 2014 somewhere online yet?


Talk to you soon,

Dear Jorge, all,

 thanks for sharing this with us. I would like to follow up on an interesting comment that Andreas Blumauer from the SW Company made on our last meeting (Andreas: I assume you are on this list?).

Andreas mentioned the importance of being able to discover relevant and appropriate ressources. This use case is core for the LIDER project in which many people here are involved and I think it would be great to have some more specific requirements on this. These requirements might then end up as a use case in a deliverable of LIDER and thus be part of our roadmap. In addition, we would try to support the corresponding use case at a technical level.

In order to get this started, it would be great to have some more specific examples of what Andreas had in mind.

Andreas: would you be willing to provide us some examples of particular needs in the form of pseudo-queries, e.g. "I need to find a lexicon in the German language on a particular domain etc.". That would be very helpful. I can try to narrate the whole thing into a coherent piece of text that can end up in one of the LIDER deliverables on relevant business cases.

Btw. Jorge and myself will be visiting the Metashare people at UPF tomorrow, so if there is anything that this group wants as to clarify there, please let us know latest today ;-)

Thanks and best regards,

Dear all, 


In our first telco I took the action of starting the discussion about the new OWL/RDF version of the MetaShare metadata model for documenting Language Resources. For the moment I have created a space in the wiki to start collecting information and related pointers. See https://www.w3.org/community/ld4lt/wiki/Main_Page#OWL_Metamodel_for_Language_Resources


We have to decide how to proceed for editing collaboratively the ontology in a simple way. I see three options here (feel free to propose others):

- use WebProtege (http://webprotege.stanford.edu/)

- use the ld4lt wiki

- use Github

Each one has its pros/cons. We can analyse them and take a decision in the next telco. 


The starting point will be the ontology already developed at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, which can be found at  <http://purl.org/ms-lod/MetaShare.ttl> http://purl.org/ms-lod/MetaShare.ttl


@Dave: do I have to register this activity as an issue in the tracking system?  <http://www.w3.org/community/ld4lt/track/options> http://www.w3.org/community/ld4lt/track/options
