We present a general approach to formally modelling corpora with multi-layered anno- tation, thereby inducing a lexicon model in a typed logical representation language, OWL DL. This model can be interpreted as a graph structure that offers flexible querying func- tionality beyond current XML-based query languages and powerful methods for consis- tency control. We illustrate our approach by applying it to the syntactically and semanti- cally annotated SALSA/TIGER corpus.
