Even if language resources covering English tend to receive most attention in the LT community, recent years have shown an increased interest in developing lexical semantic resources and semantically annotated corpora of also lesser-resourced languages, including the languages in the Nordic and Baltic region. Nevertheless, high-quality semantic resources with sufficient coverage still prove to be a serious bottleneck not only in purely rule-based NLP applications but also in supervised corpus-based approaches. Also in the Digital Humanities there is an increased interest in and need for semantic annotation which would enable more refined search in, and better visualization and analyses of large-scale corpus data. This workshop focuses in particular on the interplay between lexical-semantic resources as resembled by wordnets, framenets, propbanks, and others and their relation to practical corpus annotation.
