  • Rachele Sprugnoli, Francesco Mambrini, Giovanni Moretti, Marco Passarotti. Towards the Modelling of Polarity in a Latin Knowledge Base.

The paper describes the process of inclusion of a prior polarity lexicon of Latin lemmas, called LatinAffectus, in a knowledge base of interoperable linguistic resources developed within the LiLa: Linking Latin project. More specifically, a manually-curated list of lemma-sentiment pairs is linked to a comprehensive collection of Latin lemmas by using Semantic Web and Linked Data standards and practices. LatinAffectus relies on three formal representation frameworks: Lemon and Ontolex to describe the lexicon, and the Marl ontology to describe the sentiment properties of each of its lexical entries.
