This paper describes the application of the Lexical Markup Framework (LMF) for standardizing lexical-semantic resources in the context of NLP. More specifically, we highlight the question how lexical-semantic resources can be made semantically interoperable by means of LMF and ISOCat. The LMF model UBY-LMF, an instantiation of LMF specifically for NLP, serves as an example to illustrate the path towards semantic interoperability of lexical resources.
