Ontology-Based Annotation of Multimedia Language Data for the Semantic Web

Free registration required

Executive Summary

There is an increasing interest and effort in preserving and documenting endangered languages. Language data are valuable only when they are well-cataloged, indexed and searchable. Many language data, particularly those of lesser-spoken languages, are collected as audio and video recordings. While multimedia data provide more channels and dimensions to describe a language's function, and gives a better paper of the cultural system associated with the language of that community, they are not text-based or structured (in binary format), and their semantics is implicit in their content.
