Terminology Harmonization in Industry Classification Standards

Dagmar Gromann, Thierry Declerck

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/KonferenzbandBeitrag in Konferenzband


Terminology as a research area has shifted from portraying
terms as lexical units to a concept-oriented approach. Accordingly,
the process of terminology harmonization has to cope with the concept
orientation of term entries. One approach to harmonization is the integration
of several terminologies into one centralized terminology repository,
which is either formalized as a conceptual system or points to such
systems. In contrast, we propose an approach adopting the linked data
strategy by linking resources that preserve the initial terminologies with
the corresponding lexical items and the related ontology concepts. As
ontologies traditionally link concepts but not the natural language designation
of concepts, we propose a model that utilizes terminologies for
terminological and ontology lexicons for morpho-syntactic information.
We illustrate our suggested approach, applying it to closely related but
competing industry classification standards.
