Modelling Etymology in LMF/TEI: The 'Grande Dicionário Houaiss da Língua Portuguesa' Dictionary as a Use Case.

Fahad Khan; Laurent Romary; Ana Salgado; Jack Bowers; Mohamed Khemakhem; Toma Tasovac

In this article, we will introduce two of the new parts of the new multi-part version of the Lexical Markup Framework (LMF) ISO standard, namely Part 3 of the standard (ISO 24613-3), which deals with etymological and diachronic data, and Part 4 (ISO 24613-4), which consists of a TEI serialisation of all of the prior parts of the model. We will demonstrate the use of both standards by describing the LMF encoding of a small number of examples taken from a sample conversion of the reference Portuguese dictionary Grande Dicion´ario Houaiss da L´ıngua Portuguesa, part of a broader experiment comprising the analysis of different, heterogeneously encoded, Portuguese lexical resources. We present the examples in the Unified Modelling Language (UML) and also in a couple of cases in TEI.
