David Lindemann, Christiane Klaes, and Philipp Zumstein. Metalexicography as Knowledge Graph. In 2nd Conference on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK 2019). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 70, pp. 19:1-19:8, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2019)


This short paper presents preliminary considerations regarding LexBib, a corpus, bibliography, and domain ontology of Lexicography and Dictionary Research, which is currently being developed at University of Hildesheim. The LexBib project is intended to provide a bibliographic metadata collection made available through an online reference platform. The corresponding full texts are processed with text mining methods for the generation of additional metadata, such as term candidates, topic models, and citations. All LexBib content is represented and also publicly accessible as RDF Linked Open Data. We discuss a data model that includes metadata for publication details and for the text mining results, and that considers relevant standards for an integration into the LOD cloud.
