Wordnet-LMF XML Files

Wordnet-LMF has been proposed in the context of the EU KYOTO project as an LMF format for wordnets. It is fully compatible with the Lexical Markup Framework (LMF), a published ISO standard (ISO-24613) for encoding lexical resources. The conversion of GermaNet into Wordnet-LMF resulted within the context of our work on Standardizing Wordnets in the ISO Standard LMF: Wordnet-LMF for GermaNet (see reference below).

In our paper (see reference below), we propose a number of crucial modifications and a set of extensions to Wordnet-LMF that are needed for conversion of wordnets in general and for conversion of GermaNet in particular. There are two XQuery scripts for converting GermaNet to Wordnet-LMF available: one that results in the unmodified version of Wordnet-LMF (as it was proposed by the KYOTO project), and another that results in a revised version of Wordnet-LMF as proposed in our paper.
