Abstract
The EU-funded project European Cultural Heritage Online (ECHO) aims to integrate

resources from various domains within the field of cultural heritage, and make them available

on the Internet. To accomplish this integration it is necessary to describe the various resources

in a way that will achieve cross-domain interoperability. This description of digital resources

is commonly referred to as metadata. The most well known and used metadata standard is the

Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, a general standard developed for the purpose of

describing all types of digital resources. Since the mid-1990's a large number of specialized

standards have emerged in different communities, for example IMDI, designed for detailed

The EU-funded project European Cultural Heritage Online (ECHO) aims to integrate

resources from various domains within the field of cultural heritage, and make them available

on the Internet. To accomplish this integration it is necessary to describe the various resources

in a way that will achieve cross-domain interoperability. This description of digital resources

is commonly referred to as metadata. The most well known and used metadata standard is the

Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, a general standard developed for the purpose of

describing all types of digital resources. Since the mid-1990's a large number of specialized

standards have emerged in different communities, for example IMDI, designed for detailed

description of language resources.

This thesis aims to examine the possibility of combining a general and a specialized metadata

standard to achieve cross-domain interoperability and at the same time provide a sufficiently

detailed description of language resources for researchers within the field of linguistics. A

combination of two (or more) metadata standards in a compound schema is called an

application profile. The purpose of an application profile is to provide a tailor-made schema

for a specific context. The present study examines the semantic and structural problems

concerning the creation of an application profile for language resources, which combines

elements from the metadata standards Dublin Core and IMDI. (Less)
