Ontology development is mostly directed at the representation of domain knowledge and much less at the representation of textual or image-based symbols for this knowledge, i.e., the multilingual and multimedia lexicon. To allow for automatic multilingual and multimedia knowledge markup, a richer representation of text and image features is needed. At present, such information is mostly missing or represented only in a very impoverished way. In this paper we propose an RDF/S-based lexicon model, which in itself is an ontology that allows for the integrated representation of domain knowledge and corresponding multilingual and multimedia features.
