LMF Lexical Markup Framework

By Gil Francopoulo

The neighborhood answerable for constructing lexicons for normal Language Processing (NLP) and laptop Readable Dictionaries (MRDs) all started their ISO standardization actions in 2003. those actions ended in the ISO regular – Lexical Markup Framework (LMF).
After identifying and defining a standard terminology, the LMF staff needed to determine the typical notions shared by way of all lexicons with a view to specify a standard skeleton (called the middle version) and comprehend a few of the necessities coming from diverse teams of users.
The targets of LMF are to supply a typical version for the construction and use of lexical assets, to control the trade of information among and between those assets, and to permit the merging of a big variety of person digital assets to shape huge worldwide digital resources.
The a number of forms of person instantiations of LMF can comprise monolingual, bilingual or multilingual lexical assets. an identical requirements can be utilized for small and massive lexicons, either basic and complicated, in addition to for either written and spoken lexical representations. The descriptions diversity from morphology, syntax and computational semantics to computer-assisted translation. The languages coated aren't constrained to ecu languages, yet observe to all typical languages.
The LMF specification is now successful and various lexicon managers at the moment use LMF in several languages and contexts.
This booklet begins with the historic context of LMF, prior to supplying an outline of the LMF version and the knowledge type Registry, which gives a versatile skill for using constants like /grammatical gender/ in numerous diversified settings. It then offers concrete purposes and experiments on actual info, that are vital for builders who are looking to know about using LMF.

2. 2. The LGLex dictionary due to this paintings, it was once attainable to derive a based model of the LG tables: the LGLex dictionary, on hand in textual content or prolonged Markup Language (XML) layout [CON 10]. The LGlex layout is based at the proposal of a syntactic characteristic, yet toward present criteria in NLP: positive factors are equipped right into a tree; unfavorable details isn't really represented. LGLex is computed via the LGExtract device from a suite of LG tables of a given type, the corresponding desk of periods and a configuration dossier that offers details on each one characteristic. hence, new models of LGLex will be generated whilst tables are up to date. either the dictionary and the extractor are totally available3 less than a unfastened license (LGPL-LR). three http://infolingu. univ-mlv. fr/english (Language assets > Lexicon-Grammar > Download). a hundred and sixty LMF – Lexical Markup Framework eleven. 2. three. The LGLex-Lefff dictionary rather than the LG, the Alexina structure, that's that of the Lefff syntactic lexicon [SAG 10], is predicated at the thought of syntactic development. The LGLex verbal and nominal entries were switched over into Alexina [TOL 11b]. Grammatical capabilities of arguments, now not explicitly encoded within the LG tables or in LGLex, were formalized for LGLex-Lefff. information regarding prepositions, which might be expressed at 3 various degrees within the LG (the lexical access, the argument or the syntactic construction), has been copied for all arguments. The mnemonic identifiers of buildings were parsed to infer realizations of arguments. either the LGLex-Lefff lexicon and the LGLex-to-Alexina converter are absolutely available4 less than a unfastened license (LGPL-LR). The LMF structure is identical to Alexina. We carried out an identical LGLex-to-LMF converter for verbal entries. eleven. three. Lexical entries The LG distinguishes lexical goods at the foundation of syntactic and semantic behaviour. for instance, the verbs voler “fly” and voler “steal” are defined in specific lexical goods. during this scan of conversion, we generated LMF lexical entries in one-to-one correspondence with the LG goods. Grouping them as a functionality in their lemma and inflectional morphology might comply larger with the LMF version, yet we left this paintings for destiny types. therefore, the development of the LexicalEntry components from LGLex was once in general trouble-free. here's one of many ensuing parts: four The URL is equal to for the opposite LG assets. commande+le Conversion of Lexicon-Grammar Tables to LMF 161 We generated the identification characteristic, that's the access identifier, by means of concatenating the identifiers of its grammatical class and of the category it belongs to, and the variety of the access within the desk.
