Since its formation as an Working Group of the OKFN in October 2010, the Open Linguistics Working Group (OWLG) has been active in discussing all aspects of open and linked open data in the language sciences, language technology, knowledge engineering, digital lexicography and neighboring fields of science, industry and the humanities. We organize international workshops, e.g., the workshop series “Linked Data in Linguistics”, we have developed the Linguistic Linked Open Data cloud, and we conduct occasional meetings and telcos.
As of January 2020, a number of administrative changes have been necessary. The most important is that our mailing list migrated from OKFN to Google Groups. This mailing list will remain our primary communication channel, but in addition, we maintain a Open Knowledge Forum category for public announcements. Aside from the forum, you can get in touch via
- Open Linguistics mailing list: email@example.com (also see https://groups.google.com/group/open-linguistics)
- Website: https://linguistics.okfn.org/ (to be revised soon)
- Forum (for public announcements): https://discuss.okfn.org/c/working-groups/open-linguistics, or via mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
- GitHub (currently for archiving existing content): http://github.com/open-linguistics
Externally provided OWLG resources include the Linguistic Linked Open (LLOD) cloud diagram: http://linguistic-lod.org/
We keep you updated on future changes.
