Terminology, Ontologies and Semantic Networks
Terms in relationships: What are networks of concepts made of?
In the age of the semantic web, relationships between terms play an increasingly important role. In computer-readable ontologies, individual terms are arranged in classes, provided with attributes and put into relationships. But what relationships exist between terms? Jenny Seidel will examine the most important types of relations for capturing a subject area in context, focusing on terminology work as a basis, with a view to the semantic web, and she will address the following questions
Table of content
1. Relationships between terms – what for? How are terms related to each other – definition of systems of terms, advantages and challenges
2. Types of relationship types between terms: Which hierarchical and non-hierarchical relationship categories exist?
3. What are the “most important” relationship types? An exemplary investigation of central relationship types within a department.
4. The role of relationship types in terminology work: Can the delimitation of relationship types be used for practical terminology work? What systems and workflows exist for setting up systems of terms in terminology work?
5. Relationship types in the semantic web: How can the terminologically recorded relationships be used further in the semantic web?
