We present UBY, a large-scale lexical-semantic resource combining a wide range of information from expert-constructed and collaboratively constructed resources for English and German. It currently contains nine resources in two languages: GermaNet, and multilingual OmegaWiki modeled according to the LMF standard. For FrameNet, VerbNet and all(More)
We present UBY-LMF, an LMF-based model for large-scale, heterogeneous multilingual lexical-semantic resources (LSRs). UBY-LMF allows the standardization of LSRs down to a fine-grained level of lexical information by employing a large number of Data Categories from ISOCat. We evaluate UBY-LMF by converting nine LSRs in two languages to the corresponding(More)
This paper describes the Open Linguistics Working Group (OWLG) of the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN). The OWLG is an initiative concerned with linguistic data by scholars from diverse fields, including linguistics, NLP, and information science. The primary goal of the working group is to promote the idea of open linguistic resources, to develop means for(More)
The current evidence-based guideline on self-medication in migraine and tension-type headache of the German, Austrian and Swiss headache societies and the German Society of Neurology is addressed to physicians engaged in primary care as well as pharmacists and patients. The guideline is especially concerned with the description of the methodology used, the(More)
By today, no lexical resource can claim to be fully comprehensive or perform best for every NLP task. This caused a steep increase of resource alignment research. An important challenge is thereby the alignment of differently represented word senses, which we address in this paper. In particular, we propose a new automatically aligned resource of Wiktionary(More)
Supply chains are faced with a rising complexity of products, structures, and processes. Because of the strong link between a supply chain's complexity and its efficiency the supply chain complexity management becomes a major challenge of today's business management. A two dimensional driver concept is introduced and explained to comprehend the major causes(More)
In this paper, we introduce a novel Java implementation of multiple inter-rater agreement measures , which we make available as open-source software. Besides assessing the reliability of coding tasks using S, π, κ, α, etc., we particularly support unitizing tasks by measuring α U as the agreement of the boundaries of the identified annotation units. We(More)
We construct a new multilingual lexical resource from Wiktionary by disambiguating semantic relations and translations. For this task, we propose and evaluate an automatic disambiguation method that outperforms previous approaches significantly. We additionally introduce a method for inferring new semantic relations based on the disambiguated translations.(More)
The semi-automatic development of ontologies is an important field of research, since existing ontolo-gies often suffer from their small size, unaffordable construction cost, and limited quality of ontology learning systems. The main objective of this chapter is to introduce Wiktionary, which is a collabora-tive online dictionary encoding information about(More)
