To empower end users in searching for historical linguistic content with a performance that far exceeds the research functions offered by websites of, e.g., historical dictionaries, is undoubtedly a major advantage of (Linguistic) Linked Open Data ([L]LOD). An important aim of lexicography is to enable a language-independent, onomasiological approa...

... Fig. 1). In HW 113-229, the six conceptual levels of the 'Plan' are then further extended by another, up to three-level hierarchy of approx. 1,150 finer-grained concepts for "lexicography proper as represented by the 'words' classified in its application" (Orr, cited by HW 20, footnote 4), which we will refer to as 'Application' in the following (Fig. 2). These concepts are not consecutively numbered. Thesauri (and this applies to a conceptual scheme such as HW as well) establish hierarchical relationships and associative relationships between concepts. The hierarchical relationships can be generic, a whole-part relation, and a concept-instance relation; the associative relationships ...

... thus, needs to be converted into a format compliant with the LOD paradigm. For the digital editing of the DAGél, the 524 numbered concepts (the 'Plan', Fig. 1) of HW (second edition 1963) have been digitised in 2014 using DAG's dictionary writing system (Glessgen and Tittel, 2018). The finer-grained approx. 1,150 concepts of the 'Application' (Fig. 2) were excluded from the digitisation because the DAGél uses only the concepts of the 'Plan' as its framework. As a first step towards an RDF graph based on HW, we exported the data as XML from the DAGél's database. The XML structure is based on rows with a single XML element field and one attribute with two possi-9 Draws on the ...
