Linguistics Markup Language (LGML) is an XML-based framework for describing the syntax and semantics of natural languages.
- LGML uses many tag sets to annotate one piece of text for compatibility with different applications.
- Annotating semantic information about words. For example, using WordNet synset number to identify the meaning of a word. Again, this is flexible to allow any type of semantic annotation.
- Having it XML-based allows it to be embedded with different types of XML-based documents, such as e-books, for easy information retrieval.
