Multidimensionality of concepts in multidisciplinary domains is a problem terminographers have to deal with. We apply Corpus Pattern Analysis (CPA; Pustejovsky, Hanks, & Rumshisky, 2004) to extract conceptual dimensions according to context. The dynamic nature of these concepts is exemplified with the case study of SAND. On the other hand, knowledge(More)
Linked Data creates a shared information space by publishing and connecting resources in the Semantic Web. However, the specification of semantic relationships between data sources is still a stumbling block. One solution is to enrich ontologies with multilingual and concept-oriented information. Usefully linking entities in the Semantic Web is thus(More)
EcoLexicon is a multilingual terminological knowledge base (TKB) on the environment. It is currently being converted into a domain-specific ontology, however, ontological properties are modelled according to surface semantics. For this reason, we are integrating our TKB in the form of a " satellite ontology " into FunGramKB, a multipurpose knowledge base(More)
EcoLexicon is a Terminological Knowledge Base (TKB) on environment. Our TKB is primarily hosted in a relational database (RDB) but at the same time integrated in an ontological model. Ontologies provide a suitable schema for sharing semantic resources. Nevertheless, before considering the interoperability of other environmental knowledge-based projects, we(More)
This paper focuses on the manual creation of context-­‐dependent natural-­‐language definitions in EcoLexicon, a terminological knowledge base on the Environment. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the environmental domain, many concepts in EcoLexicon show a high degree of multidimensionality. In other words, this means that concepts can be described(More)
Environmental decision-making depends on seamless communication between EU agencies and administrations. However, the transmission of environmental information is considerably more than a simple exchange of measurements and data. Prominent communication barriers to the creation of a Single Information Space in Europe for the Environment (SISE) include(More)
