Abstract: There is an increasing interest and effort in preserving and documentingendangered languages. Language data are valuable only when they arewell-cataloged, indexed and searchable. Many language data, particularly thoseof lesser-spoken languages, are collected as audio and video recordings. Whilemultimedia data provide more channels and dimensions to describe a language-sfunction, and gives a better presentation of the cultural system associatedwith the language of that community, they are not text-based or structured inbinary format, and their semantics is implicit in their content. The contentis thus easy for a human being to understand, but difficult for computers tointerpret. Hence, there is a great need for a powerful and user-friendly systemto annotate multimedia data with text-based, well-structured and searchablemetadata. This chapter describes an ontology-based multimedia annotation tool,OntoELAN, that enables annotation of language multimedia data with a linguisticontology.
