I am currently working on a project of encoding simultaneous interpreting
transcriptions using TEI. I already have some experience of using TEI to
encode spoken data, but I am planning to cover several other features. For
this purpose, I would really appreciate it if you could help me to solve
some problems; in particular, I'd be extremely grateful if you could suggest
me any corpus (and possibly a web site) which has dealt with the problems
I'm referring to so that I could have a "model" to look at...
1) Has anyone ever tried to use the <timeline> element to encode spoken data?
The corpus I want to encode involves simultaneous interpretations, and I
would really need to use the <timeline> to have a fairly precise account of
the temporal aspects of the transcriptions.
2) The Guidelines (chp 11) suggest to use entity references to encode
(simple) phonemic or phonetic aspects. Is there any advantage in using
entity references rather than (equivalent) punctuation marks? Is there any
corpus available which has dealt with intonation?
3) How can I link digitised audio/video recordings to TEI conformant documents?
I really thank you in advance for your help.
