What is a concept registy?

Submitted by Dieter Van Uytvanck on 15 July 2009

The CLARIN Concept Registry is a step in the direction of interoperability at the level of linguistic encoding (tag sets, metadata elements, etc.). The basic idea is to register all widely used concepts/terminology in CLARIN so that everyone can refer to them. The CLARIN Concept Registry is based on the W3C SKOS recommendation, which is a generic model not restricted to linguistics.
