Hello there,

A question that Jin-Dong can answer best, but whose answer will maybe be of interest to others besides myself: what LOD representation(s) do you prefer for linguistic corpora?  I am looking for something that I could use to encode metadata like the following:

1. Some data is spoken, some is written
2. Some corpora are "open" (content is added over time), some are not (their content is fixed)
3. Some corpora contain multiple-author data (e.g. newspaper articles), some contain single-author data (e.g. suicide notes)

Searching around, I have found tons of papers about building ontologies from corpora, but no ontologies of corpora.  And I have found OntoLex-lemon for lexical resources, but nothing similar for corpora themselves.  Ontologies of linguistic annotations: absolutely.  Of metadata: of course.  Of languages: yep.  Of corpora: no.

Opinions/advice?

Kev
