Dataset Description
Contributive resources, such as Wikipedia, have proved to be valuable to Natural Language Processing or multilingual Information Retrieval applications. This work focusses on Wiktionary, the dictionary part of the resources sponsored by the Wikimedia foundation. In this article, we present our effort to extract multilingual lexical data from Wiktionary data and to provide it to the community as a Multilingual Lexical Linked Open Data (MLLOD). This lexical resource is structured using the LEMON Model. This data, called DBnary, is registered at http://thedatahub.org/dataset/dbnary.

Review Comment:

As I wrote in my previous reviews, this short paper fits into the topics of the special issue very well as a "dataset description" paper. I still think, however, that some of its design decisions need a clearer justification, although this could be left to a more detailed (full-length) paper, maybe. Still, DBnary has the merit of being one of the earliest adoptions of lemon and, as such, this practical experience is worth being reported and communicated in this special issue. Further, the minor issues raised by the reviewers seem to be addressed in this new version.
