Specialised Information Service Linguistics
|Funded by:||German Research Foundation (DFG)|
|Scope of funding:||Staff appropriations and |
|Project duration:||2017 - 2019|
The German Research Foundation (DFG) supports the Specialised Information Service Linguistics (FID Linguistik), a cooperation project between the University Library Johann Christian Senckenberg and Prof. Christian Chiarcos from the Applied Computational Linguistics lab (ACoLi) at the Goethe University. The FID Linguistik replaces the former special subject collection General Linguistics, Comparative Linguistics. For decades, the special subject collection had had the function to collect the scientific literature from the field of general linguistics with all its subdomains and neighboring disciplines as extensively as possible.
The FID Linguistik will develop the well-established Linguistik portal further. The Linguistik portal is a research instrument for the general and comparative linguistics, and the linguistics of single languages. It offers a unified interface for discipline-specific scientific resources: printed as well as electronic secondary literature, scientific online sources and research data. Within the FID Linguistik, different measures are planned in order to optimize the search for research data, to enhance the visibility of that data and to support the access to commercial language resources.
- In a former project, the Linguistik portal had already been connected to the Linked Open Data cloud, which enabled the enhancement of the search facility. The task now is to further expand the linking. Thus, the Thesaurus of the Bibliography of Linguistic Literature (BLL) will be linked with additional ontologies within the LOD cloud.
- By applying and development of ontology-based NLP tools, annotated language corpora will be analyzed and enriched with content-related metadata. The accumulated metadata will be integrated in the Linguistik portal and made available under a Creative Commons license CC0.
- The BLL lists numerous publications from the field of corpus linguistics. The goal is to link the secondary literature with the research data (language corpora, electronic dictionaries, etc.) covered in the respective publication, and, as a result, to enhance the visibility of the publications and the underlying data.
- In order to facilitate the access to research data, the FID Linguistik aims at providing supra-regional license agreements for commercial multilingual language corpora.
Furthermore, the FID Linguistik will offer interested researchers or small specialist publishers a technical infrastructure for the editing and hosting of open access journals.
The acquisition of highly specialized literature completes the range of services the FID Linguistik will offer. Book purchase suggestions by the research community are welcome.
