In this paper, we explore how we can reuse data from the ANW – an online corpus-based, scholarly dictionary of contemporary standard –, improve and optimise it by porting some of its elements into modules of the lexicon model for ontologies (lemon). For the current study, the focus was set on the application of the ontolex and decomp modules, together with the associated LexInfo vocabulary in order to model the semantic and morphosyntactic features of nominal entries in the ANW. We observe that encoding the ANW information in lemon has a number of advantages, including a better modularisation of the data, linking to other (lexical) data and data access using the standardised SPARQL query language.
