Lexica play an important role in every linguistic discipline. We are confronted with many types of lexica. Depending on
the type of lexicon and the language we are currently faced with a large variety of structures from very simple tables to
complex graphs, as was indicated by a recent overview of structures found in dictionaries from field linguistics and
language engineering. It is important to assess these differences and aim at the integration of lexical resources in order to
improve lexicon creation, exchange and reuse. This paper describes the first step towards the integration of existing
structures and standards into a flexible abstract model.
