Linguistic Linked Open Data

Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) is a movement about publishing open language resources for different use cases in academic research, applied linguistics or natural language processing. The LLOD cloud comprises lexical-conceptual resources (dictionaries, knowledge bases), corpora, terminology repositories (thesauri, ontologies), and metadata collections (language resource metadata, bibliographies).

The Linguistik portal offers a novel search function that facilitates the accessibility of LLOD resources. The LOD-based search is integrated in the Catalogue module.

The thesaurus of the Bibliography of Linguistic Literature (BLL) plays a significant role for the data integration. The subject headings used for indexing and classification within the Linguistik portal are based mainly on the BLL Thesaurus. Therefore, the connection between the Linguistik portal and the LLOD cloud was implemented by creating an LOD edition of the BLL Thesaurus and linking it to further terminological repositories. When searching with BLL subject headings, one can hence find LLOD resources in which the respective linguistic concepts are used as part of the annotation scheme.
