The main challenge of the conversion is discussed, namely the reconciliation between the PSC semantic structure which contains richly encoded semantic information,(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)

In this article we will outline two different vocabularies, both extensions of the lemon model, for representing diachronic lexico-semantic 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,(More)
In this article we look at how the use of ontologies can assist in analysing polysemy in natural languages. We develop a model, the Lexical-Sense-Ontology model (LSO), to represent the interaction between a lexicon and ontology, based on lemon. We use the LSO model to show how default rules can be used to represent semi-productivity in polysemy as well as(More)
