In the context of the expanding Linked (Open) Data framework (LOD), work has started to encode linguistic resources in the same format as performed for the data sets present in the LOD, and which represent mainly domain specific knowledge. This approach has been extensively discussed in the W3C Ontology-Lexica Community Group, resulting in the “OntoLex” model, and is also being supported by the European LIDER project, leading for example to extensions of the recently created Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) cloud, and by the European FREME project, applying LLOD principles to various industrial use cases. This development is highly relevant to the goals of the European Network of e-Lexicography (ENeL) COST action, and in this respect we performed a number of experiments to encode lexicographic data of various ENeL partners in a LLOD compliant format. We report in this paper on the first steps taken in the cooperation between ENeL and the other aforementioned projects, providing some detail regarding the encoding model we use: OntoLex.
