A Tag For Punctuation

Abstract : In this paper I will argue that it may be useful to introduce a special tag (e.g. ) for punctuation marks, which could join the TEI Analysis module along with , , and other "segLike" elements. I will first discuss the reasons why punctuation marks may need tagging, and then consider the TEI tags that might be used for that purpose. None of them appears to be perfect for this job. After discussing linguistic properties of punctuation marks, I will propose a tentative formal definition for the element.
