This paper describes the publication and linking of (parts of) PAROLE SIMPLE CLIPS (PSC), a large scale Italian lexicon, to the Semantic Web and the Linked Data cloud using the lemon model. The main challenge of the conversion is discussed, namely the reconciliation between the PSC semantic structure which contains richly encoded semantic information,(More)
Action verbs have many meanings, covering actions in different ontological types. Moreover, each language categorizes action in its own way. One verb can refer to many different actions and one action can be identified by more than one verb. The range of variations within and across languages is largely unknown, causing trouble for natural language(More)
In the last 20 years dictionaries and lexicographic resources such as WordNet have started to be enriched with multimodal content. Short videos depicting basic actions support the user’s need (especially in second language acquisition) to fully understand the range of applicability of verbs. The IMAGACT project has among its results a repository of action(More)
In this article we will outline two different vocabularies, both extensions of the lemon model, for representing diachronic lexicosemantic data on the Semantic Web. This is especially useful for representing the evolution of scientific terminologies where many terms are polysemous and or imported from other languages. The first vocabulary, polyLemon, allows(More)
In this paper, we present an unrestricted Kannada online handwritten character recognizer which is viable for real time applications. It handles all basic characters of the Kannada script. In this paper, the proposed Online Handwritten Kannada Character Recognition System (OHKCRS) is discussed in detail. Developing an Online Handwriting Recognition System(More)
In this paper we look at how Generative Lexicon theory can assist in providing a more thorough definition of word senses as links between items in a RDF-based lexicon and concepts in an ontology. We focus on the definition of lexical sense in lemon and show its limitations before defining a new model based on lemon and which we term lemonGL. This new model(More)
Knowledge about semantic associations between words is effective to disambiguate word senses. The aim of this paper is to investigate the role and the relevance of telic information from SIMPLE in the disambiguation of basic action types of Italian HOLD verbs (prendere, ‘to take’, raccogliere, ‘to pick up’, pigliare ‘to grab’ etc.). We propose an experiment(More)
The growing number of ontologies on the web has emerged new research issues in the field of semantic web. It is now common to have more than one ontologies on the web for a specific domain. These ontologies may have various types of heterogeneities and therefore it is a challenging task for information retrieval systems to utilize the knowledge of all(More)
This paper describes the conversion into LMF, a standard lexicographic digital format of ’al-qāmūs al-muh. īt . , a Medieval Arabic lexicon. The lexicon is first described, then all the steps required for the conversion are illustrated. The work is will produce a useful lexicographic resource for Arabic NLP, but is also interesting per se, to study the(More)
In recent history there has been an enormous development in the subject area of Power Line Communications (PLC), since it has become possible due to advanced digital communications and digital signal processing techniques to use power lines for data transmission. PLC allows the use of the dynamic and far-reaching power cables to support high speed(More)
