D1: 1st Phase (Stede, Lüdeling)

Linguistic Database for Information Structure: Annotation and Retrieval

[ This phase of the project is completed. It was in progress from 01.07.2003 until 30.06.2007. ]


Project D1 provides the technical infrastructure for building, maintaining and retrieving the linguistic data collected by the SFB. D1 supports the individual projects in choosing suitable software and hardware for their task of data annotation. Moreover, D1 will develop a user-friendly query language and provide world-wide access to the database via the internet.

In addition, in close collaboration with project D2, D1 will develop a consistent annotation format, based on existing annotation standards such as CES or TUSNELDA. The focus will be on the systematic integration of information-structural features in existing annotation schemata.

The database will represent the first collection of data of typologically diverse languages that are annotated by information-structural features according to standardized criteria. A sophisticated query tool will make this resource available to the international research community.
