Linking the Lewis & Short Dictionary to the LiLa Knowledge Base of Interoperable Linguistic Resources for Latin

Mambrini, Francesco; Litta, Eleonora; Passarotti, Marco; Ruffolo, Paolo

This paper describes the steps taken to include data from the Lewis & Short bilingual Latin-English dictionary into the Knowledge Base of linguistic resources for Latin LiLa. First, data were extracted from the original XML and matched with entries in LiLa, overcoming ambiguities and structural inconsistencies in the source. Subsequently, senses were mod- elled using the Ontolex Lemon Lexicographic module (lexicog), so that they could be included in the LiLa Knowledge Base and thus made interoperable with the (meta)data of the linguistic resources for Latin therein interlinked.
