The Open Linguistics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation
The Open Linguistics Working Group (OWLG) is an initiative of experts from different fields concerned with linguistic data, including academic linguistics (e.g. typology, corpus linguistics), applied linguistics (e.g. computational linguistics, lexicography and language documentation) and NLP (e.g. from the Semantic Web community). The primary goals of the working group are 1) the promotion of the idea of open linguistic resources 2) the development of means for their representation, and 3) encouraging the exchange of ideas across different disciplines.
To a certain extent, the activities of the Open Linguistics Working Group converge towards the creation of a Linguistic Linked Open Data cloud, which is a topic addressed from different angles by several members. Some of these activities are described further in the other contributions of this part.
