The LAPPS Web Service Exchange Vocabulary defines an ontology of terms for a core of linguistic objects and features exchanged among NLP tools that consume and produce linguistically annotated data. It is intended to be used for module description and input/output interchange to support service discovery, composition, and reuse in the natural language processing domain.
The Exchange Vocabulary is being developed bottom-up on an as-needed basis for use in the development of the LAPPS Grid. The Type Hierarchy below contains all of the elements for which specifications have been finalized so far. Detailed information is available by clicking on the relevant element.
