In this article, we describe ourwork on porting Open Multilingual Word-net resources into the OntoLex-Lemonmodel, in order to establish an interlink-ing with corresponding morphological re-sources, such as the MMorph resource set.For this purpose, the morphological re-sources were also ported onto OntoLex-Lemon. We show how the “lemmas” con-tained in the Wordnet resources can be en-riched with morphological features usingthe lexical representation and linking fea-tures of OntoLex-Lemon, which support,among others, the formulation of restric-tions in the usage of such expressions. Ourwork will result in an improved lexical re-source combining Wordnet senses and fullmorphological descriptions in a single on-tological framework, as specified in theOntoLex-Lemon model
