Metamodel for lexical data

Type of document:
International Standard (under review)
2008 (reconfirmed in 2012)
ISO 24613, "Lexical Markup Framework (LMF)," describes a metamodel for representing data in lexical databases used with monolingual and multilingual computer applications. LMF provides mechanisms that allow the development and integration of a variety of electronic lexical resource types. These mechanisms will present existing lexicons as far as possible. If this is impossible, problematic information will be identified and isolated.
Workflow stage:
1.7, 1.9, 1.14, 2.4, 2.10
Business value:
LMF provides a common model for the creation and use of large scale lexical resources, to facilitate interchange and resuse. This standard would be beneficial to any organization that develops lexical resources.
