SIG:TEI for Linguists
This Special Interest Group is meant for those interested in linguistics, in the TEI, and in putting the two together.
Contact details, information
The SIG activities (will) include official meetings at TEI-MMs, conference reports and e-mail exchange on the mailing list. As part of its activity, the SIG will attempt to track and record papers that deal with using various markup standards for the purpose of encoding linguistic analyses and language resources.
This is an informal list of tickets in the scope of interest of our SIG. Edit as appropriate.

- The first official meeting took place in Zadar, on 13 November 2010; see the agenda and the minutes. The meeting was preceded by the LLiZ (Linguistic Lunch in Zadar) and a poster presentation.
- The second meeting took place in Würzburg, on 14 October 2011. The meeting presented LingSIG bibliography maintained as a Zotero library, for everyone to use and add to. Its recurring theme was "keep the SIG aware about the stuff you're doing".
- Here's how it began
- TEI Guidelines have their apocrypha as well, here's one on corpus annotation. Note that it is absolutely non-normative, included here to give credit to the original Working Group and to provide a platform to either elaborate on or to diverge from.
The first official meeting of the SIG took place on 13 November 2010 at the TEI-MM in Zadar. This meeting was preceded by a reconnaissance lunch (we liked both the intel and the food) and a Poster Slam presentation (boyakasha...).
The most relevant chapters of the Guidelines
- 8. Transcriptions of Speech
- 9. Dictionaries: we need to have a plan so that the NLP community does consider this as a default vocabulary for representing NLP lexica (e.g. full form lexica)
- 15. Language Corpora
- 17. Simple Analytic Mechanisms
- 18. Feature Structures
- 20. Non-hierarchical Structures
The SIG would like to put together and maintain a bibliography of works relevant to linguistics and markup (TEI in particular but not only -- the world is full of sources of inspiration). The bibliography is maintained as a Zotero resource.
