Linguistic Annotation is a significant application area supporting research on human communication through annotation of language corpora – collections of language samples as text, audio and video. This talk describes representation of the Linguistic Annotation Framework graph structure that uses the Sematic Web standard Resource Definition Format (RDF) store and linked data techniques to store annotations and make them available as resources on the web.
