Dear all,

I'll try to summarise a couple of doubts I have about the
lemon-ontolex core module:

1. What if we have to support long descriptions? In principle lemon
supports lexical entries (which can be compound words), but what about
long descriptions? i.e., things that typically come in rdfs:comment.
Where is the limit, btw? Now I am thinking on terms that do not have a
proper translation into another language and a description is used
instead. For instance, "gazpacho"@es -> "tomato-based, vegetable soup,
traditionally served cold, originating in the southern Spanish region
of Andalucia"@en. Can we represent this as a (long) written
representation of a lexical entry? Otherwise, what is the solution?

2. I inspected the owl file for the core model and I see these imports:

Import: <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core>
Import: <http://www.ontologydesignpatterns.org/cp/owl/semiotics.owl>

Are they really needed? Can't we just put them as prefixes, i.e.,
linking them without importing them?
Actually, I assume that when the "linking module" is ready the links
to semiotics/skos existent now in the core will be moved there, right?

Regards,
Jorge
