Dear all,
I've been meaning to set up a meeting for looking a bit closer at modelling sign languages material in combination with embeddings (the use case from Manolis Fragkiadakis) using the OntoLex core and the Frac module. Below you will find a link to a Teams meeting for those who are interested to join in on the discussion (from 11:00h to 12:00h CEST), scheduled right before the next OntoLex Frac telcon (12:00h to 13:00h CEST). I'll make sure to be present a bit before the start so as to grant access to those joining.
Some aspects that will help in the discussion:

   *   Sign language does know variation in forms through inflections, though this tends to be not on aspects such as tense, which is often encoded in a separate gesture at the start or end of a sentence,&nbsp;but&nbsp;rather on things such as indicating the subject and object (see here<https://www.handspeak.com/learn/index.php?id=18#:~:text=ASL%2FDeaf%20Culture-,Verb%20inflection%20in%20American%20Sign%20Language,verbs%20are%20called%20indicating%20verbs.>)
   *   OntoLex 'Form', then, seems better reserved for modelling such syntactic/inflectional variation rather than various occurrences of the word in discourse (e.g., where one person may use slightly wider gestures contrasted to another person).
   *   The easyTV model that Julia provided us with appears to reflect this situation, although many of the classes are undefined (which makes it difficult to properly interpret the model). Perhaps Julia can encourage its authors to join in on the&nbsp;conversation?&nbsp;
Best wishes,
Sander Stolk
