TEI-OntoLex Workshop

written by Thierry Declerck on 2019-10-24

In collaboration with the ELEXIS H2020 project, a two day workshop connecting the main developers of the OntoLex-Lemon model and the TEI Lex-0 model was held on the 4th and 5th of October in Sintra, Portugal after the eLex conference. In this meeting, discussions were held about the interaction of the two models and their differences. As a principal results, it was surmised that the models were complementary as TEI-Lex0 aims to maintain the dictionary as an artifact, while OntoLex-Lemon is a data model. As a result, researchers from both sides agreed to create an authorative mapping between TEI and OntoLex as an XSLT stylesheet on GitHub at https://github.com/elexis-eu/tei2ontolex.
