APiCS-Ligt: Towards Semantic Enrichment of Interlinear Glossed Text

Abstract

This paper presents APiCS-Ligt, an LLOD version of a collection of interlinear glossed linguistic examples from APiCS, the Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Language Structures. Interlinear glossed text (IGT) plays an important role in typological and theoretical linguistic research, especially with understudied and endangered languages: It provides a way to understand linguistic phenomena without necessarily knowing the source language which is crucial for these languages since native speakers are not always easily accessible.
Previously, we presented Ligt, RDF vocabulary created for representing interlinear glosses in text segments. In this paper, we present our conversion of the APiCS IGT dataset into this model and describe our efforts in linking linguistic annotations to an external ontology to add semantic representation.
