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)
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)
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 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 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 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)
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)
With the advancement in various fields of energy and communication sector, there is a strong need to upgrade the outdated power transmission and distribution grid to an intelligent and efficient Smart Grid (SG). An integral part of SG is a robust and ubiquitously available communication network that will enable various entities connected to the SG to(More)
