All, to finish this discussion online

We would like to emphasize the use case for an ontology-lexicon model in 
ontology-driven decomposition and interpretation of terminology.

This is already possible in the lemon model (and has been a focus of 
pre-decessor models LingInfo & LexInfo) but we would still need to make 
a more extensive use case for it in the context of this WG so that 
interested parties, incl. commercial can better interpret the potential 
use of lemon (or follow-up model) in their application context.

As explained briefly in the telco today, the following German example 
illustrates this:

'Bundesausbildungsfoerderungsgesetz' (terminologically: single-word 
technical term; linguistically: complex noun compound) from the STW 
Thesaurus for Economics (http://zbw.eu/stw/versions/latest/about)

Given the STW context (= STW terms), this term/compound can be 
decomposed (and represented in lemon) as follows:

stw:bundes, stw:ausbildungsfoerderungs, stw:gesetz
(federal, education support, law)

with head stw:gesetz, i.e.

[mod stw:bundes [mod stw:ausbildungsfoerderungs]] [head stw:gesetz]

where each component directs back to an STW concept

With this representation (abbreviated and more elaborate in lemon) a 
process can derive term variants for this same concept, such as

Bundesgesetz fuer Ausbildungsfoerderung
(federal law on education support)

As said in the telco, at DERI we are happy to collaborate with others on 
working this out in more detail and connect it with other relevant use 
cases

Cheers


Paul
