   RELEASE OF DBlexipedia



The Semantic Computing Group at CITEC, Bielefeld University, is proud to
announce the release of the first version of DBlexipedia.

DBlexipedia provides lexicalizations for 608 properties of the DBpedia
ontology (http://wiki.dbpedia.org/services-resources/ontology) in
English, German and Spanish, which were induced by means of the
automatic ontology lexicalization approach M-ATOLL (described in [1] and
[2]). The lexicalizations are modelled in lemon format

Just like DBpedia provides a hub for Semantic Web datasets, DBlexipedia
can serve as a hub for the multilingual lexical Semantic Web, an
ecosystem in which ontology lexica are published, linked, and re-used
across applications.

Check out some example lexicalizations:

* spouse:
* deathCause:

We will continuously improve DBlexipedia, especially by increasing the
number of covered properties from the DBpedia ontology, and by adding
further languages (such as Japanese).

For more information, please refer to our paper [3]. And if you happen
to be at ISWC, we'd be happy to meet you at the NLP & DBpedia workshop!

With best regards,
Sebastian Walter
Christina Unger
Philipp Cimiano
