LMF Lexical Markup Framework

The neighborhood answerable for constructing lexicons for traditional Language Processing (NLP) and computing device Readable Dictionaries (MRDs) begun their ISO standardization actions in 2003. those actions led to the ISO ordinary – Lexical Markup Framework (LMF).
After settling on and defining a typical terminology, the LMF staff needed to establish the typical notions shared via all lexicons so that it will specify a standard skeleton (called the middle version) and comprehend many of the requisites coming from diverse teams of users.
The objectives of LMF are to supply a standard version for the construction and use of lexical assets, to control the trade of information among and between those assets, and to allow the merging of a giant variety of person digital assets to shape large worldwide digital resources.
The numerous kinds of person instantiations of LMF can comprise monolingual, bilingual or multilingual lexical assets. a similar requirements can be utilized for small and big lexicons, either basic and intricate, in addition to for either written and spoken lexical representations. The descriptions variety from morphology, syntax and computational semantics to computer-assisted translation. The languages coated aren't constrained to ecu languages, yet observe to all ordinary languages.
The LMF specification is now a hit and various lexicon managers at the moment use LMF in numerous languages and contexts.
This publication starts off with the ancient context of LMF, ahead of supplying an outline of the LMF version and the information class Registry, which gives a versatile capability for employing constants like /grammatical gender/ in numerous various settings. It then offers concrete purposes and experiments on actual info, that are very important for builders who are looking to find out about using LMF.

Example text

A statement block is a set of statements surrounded by braces. Thus, where you might write: if (someCondition) someStatement; you can instead write: if(someCondition) { statementOne; statementTwo; statementThree; } Nested if statements It is possible, and not uncommon, to nest if statements to handle complex conditions. For example, suppose you need to write a program to evaluate the temperature, and specifically to return the following types of information: • If the temperature is 32 degrees or lower, the program should warn you about ice on the road.

There is one exception, which is the use of the keyword var (covered in Chapter 13). In this case, C# is able to infer the type of the object and thus, rather than being manifest, is actually implicit. Finally, C# is strongly typed, which means that any operation you attempt on any object or variable must be appropriate to that type, or it will cause a compiler error. Once again, this is a good thing; it helps identify bugs reliably at compile time. In summary, we can say that C# is statically, manifestly, and strongly typed when using most types, except when using the keyword var, at which time it is statically, implicitly, and strongly typed!

The stack refers to an area of memory managed by the processor, on which the local variables are stored. The heap is an initially undifferentiated area of memory that can be referred to by items placed on the stack. Variables (discussed shortly), whose type is one of the intrinsic types, are usually placed on the stack. Other variables, of types supplied by the Framework or of types you define, are called objects, and are usually created on the heap and referred to by a variable on the stack. For this reason, they are called reference types.
