Modeling our languages with Lexeme[edit]

Abstract/description of your session[edit]

Lexeme is the name for the lexicographical layer of Wikidata, that is, the features for documenting words and phrases in Wikidata. Now is an exciting opportunity to document Indic languages with structured data, in a more precise and high-quality way than Wiktionary ever provided, and which will enable a lot of innovative uses. This workshop will walk you through how to contribute to documenting your own language, both manually and using some tools.

How does it connect with the WCI 2023 theme/focus[edit]

Language is a powerful component of identity. Documenting our native languages on a shared platform brings us closer together, and creates potential for apps, games, and tools that bridge cultural and linguistic differences.

Language of the session[edit]


Session type[edit]

Tutorial workshop (2 hours)

(I realize the page only offers 1-hour slots for workshops. I need two hours to teach Lexeme properly. If a double slot can be allocated for this workshop, great. If not, I certainly understand, but please decline the proposed session then. I won't deliver it in under two hours.)

Session outcomes[edit]

  • attendees will get to know Lexeme and its features
  • attendees will learn some tools for browsing Lexeme and for contributing to Lexeme (including audio)

Support required from organizers[edit]

Nothing special.
