The need of ever growing language resources calls for us to propose and promote a change in the overall model of how to build, maintain and share Language Resources (LRs). A new paradigm is required, under the form of an open, distributed and collaborative language infrastructure, based on open content interoperability standards. Existing experience in LR development proves that such a challenge can be tackled only by pursuing - on the organisational side - a truly interdisciplinary and cooperative approach, and by establishing - on the technical side - a highly advanced environment for the representation and acquisition of linguistic information, open to the reuse and interchange of linguistic data. In this paper we explore the idea of this new paradigm for language resources applied to the case of computational lexicons.
