Dear ontolex group members,

Based on some previous works on "lemonising" lexicographically rich
dictionaries (see [1-7] for instance) there are now a lot of experiences
and knowledge in the community that could be "reverted" to the ontolex
model in order to improve it, and to fix some of its current limitations
that typically oblige to propose "ad-hoc" solutions when modelling
lexicographical data.

Therefore I would like to propose the creation of a new ontolex module
specifically designed for lexicography. I know that a number of people in
the group would be interested in participating but possibly we can invite
other people working on LD and lexicography to join this initiative. We
could use the ontolex group to support this activity, if the group chairs
(and members) are happy with the idea.

If you are interested on this and want to contribute actively, or know
about someone outside the group who we could contact, please let me know so
we can start moving things.

Best regards
