About GOLD

The purpose of the GOLD Community is to bring together scholars interested in best-practice encoding of linguistic data. We promote best practice as suggested by E-MELD, encourage data interoperability through the use of the GOLD Standard, facilitate search across disparate data sets and provide a platform for sharing existing data and tools from related research projects. The development and refinement of the GOLD Standard will be the basis for and the product of the combined efforts of the GOLD Community. This standard encompasses linguistic concepts, definitions of these concepts and relationships between them in a freely available ontology.
