This paper reports on the integration of language and knowledge resources within CLaDA-BG infrastructure. The idea is to encode linguistic knowledge on all levels of language starting from text, grammatical annotation and lemmatization to semantic and conceptual annotation. Our goal is to support conceptual annotation of various research objects (mainly texts). One of the main applications will be the management of a Bulgaria-centric Knowledge Graph.
