Towards modeling Arabic lexicons compliant LMF in OWL-DL

Abstract : Elaborating reusable lexical databases and especially making interoperability operational are crucial tasks effecting both Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Semantic Web. With this respect, we consider that modeling Lexical Markup Framework (LMF) in Web Ontology Language Description Logics (OWL-DL) can be a beneficial attempt to reach these aims. This proposal will have large repute since it concerns the reference standard LMF for modeling lexical structures. In this paper, we study the requirement for this suggestion. We first make a quick presentation of the LMF framework. Next, we define the three ontology definition sublanguages that may be easily used by specific users: OWL Lite, OWL-DL and OWL Full. After comparing of the three, we have chosen to work with OWL-DL. We then define the ontology language OWL and describe the steps needed to model LMF in OWL. Finally, we apply this model to develop an instance for an Arabic lexicon.
