Announcements

The LEXIDMA TC successfully held its first meeting on 16th December 2019 1600 UTC. Mr. Tomaz Erjavec of the Josef Stefan Institute (IJS) was elected chair and Dr. David Filip of Trinity College Dublin (ADAPT) was elected Secretary. Seven members attended.

Participation in the OASIS Lexicographic Infrastructure Data Model and API (LEXIDMA) TC is open to all interested parties. Contact join@oasis-open.org for more information.


Overview

The LEXIDMA TC’s purpose is to create an open standards based framework for internationally interoperable lexicographic work. The TC will develop a simple, modular, and easy to adopt data model that will be attractive for all lexicographic industry actors across companies and academia as well as geographic locations. Adoption of that model will facilitate exchange of lexicographic and linguistic corpus data globally and also enable effective exchange with adjacent industries such as language services, terminology management, or technical writing.

The TC will describe and define standard serialization independent interchange objects based predominantly on state of the art in the lexicographic industry. Defining specific serializations, transaction models, standard interfaces, and web services based on the defined objects and object models is also in scope as far as it facilitates the high level purpose set out here. It aims to develop this lexicographic infrastructure as part of a broader ecosystem of standards employed in Natural Language Processing (NLP), language services, and Semantic Web.
