|TELIX facilitates the exchange of linguistically encoded texts|
|Wednesday, 28 September 2011 14:51|
TELIX (Text Encoding and Linguistic Information eXchange) is a novel approach to represent linguistic information as RDF datasets based on a new OWL ontology. This ontology is an extension of the SKOS XL vocabulary, a W3C framework for representing lexical entities in the RDF format and its main objective is to extend and overcome the SKOS XL limitations capturing lexical entities as RDF resources.
TELIX also proposes a mechanism based on the RDFa vocabulary to combine the business document source and the information derived from the text segmentation in the same file.
TELIX offers a number of advantages with respect to the state of the art by introducing a number of classes and properties aiming to provide natural language acquisition and extraction tools with powerful mechanisms to build interchangable, multilinguistic lexical resources (such as dictionaries or thesauri) in the web.
TELIX is one of the outcomes of the ONTORULE project. The most up-to-date specification of TELIX can be found as an annex to Deliverable 1.4.
