TEI across corpora, languages and genres: Towards a standard for the representation of social media and computer-mediated communication

Abstract : The panel presents results and ongoing work from corpus projects in which TEI-P5 has been adopted for the representation and linguistic annotation of genres of social media and computer-mediated communication (CMC). It relates to the work of the TEI-SIG “computer-mediated communication” which is developing TEI models for the representation of CMC genres and testing these models for a broad range of genres (ranging from “text-only” genres such as chat and SMS to multimodal genres such as learning environments and Second Life) and in corpus building initiatives for various European languages. The goal of the panel is to give an overview of models and practices in representing CMC in TEI on the example of German and French CMC corpora. A documentation and ODD files of the schemas developed by the group will be made available in the TEI wiki and be announced via the TEI mailing list before the conference so that everybody who is interested in participating in the discussion can examine the CMC models in advance. The discussion in the panel shall serve as an opportunity for collecting feedback on these models and schema drafts from a broader community within the TEI who is interested in adapting TEI-P5 for the representation of new (digital) genres. This feedback will be taken into consideration when revising the models and – as a next step after the conference – preparing feature requests for adapting the TEI for CMC.
