    Las Directrices de la Iniciativa de Codificaci贸n de Textos (TEI) se consideran desde hace tiempo el est谩ndar de facto para la preparaci贸n de recursos digitales de texto en la comunidad de investigadores acad茅micos. Ofrecen un abanico de posibilidades abrumador para el principiante, que refleja la enorme gama de posibles aplicaciones de la codificaci贸n de textos: desde las ediciones acad茅micas tradicionales hasta los corpus ling眉铆sticos, los l茅xicos hist贸ricos, los archivos digitales y mucho m谩s. Apoyado en numerosos ejemplos de textos codificados con TEI procedentes de diversos campos de investigaci贸n, este libro sencillo y directo pretende ayudar al principiante a tomar sus propias decisiones entre toda la gama de posibilidades de TEI. Explica la tecnolog铆a XML utilizada por TEI en un lenguaje accesible al lector lego, ofrece una visita guiada a las numerosas partes del universo TEI y explica c贸mo puede personalizarse para adaptarse a las necesidades de un proyecto individual

    From 03.12.06 to 08.12.06, the Dagstuhl Seminar 06491 ``Digital Historical Corpora - Architecture, Annotation, and Retrieval\u27\u27 was held in the International Conference and Research Center (IBFI), Schloss Dagstuhl. During the seminar, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar as well as abstracts of seminar results and ideas are put together in this paper. The first section describes the seminar topics and goals in general. Links to extended abstracts or full papers are provided, if availabl

    In search of comity: TEI for distant reading

    Any expansion of the TEI beyond its traditional user base involves a recognition that there are many differing answers to the traditional question 鈥淲hat is text, really?鈥 We report on some work carried out in the context of the COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary History (CA16204), in particular on the TEI-conformant schemas developed for one of its principal deliverables: the European Literary Text Collection (ELTeC). The ELTeC will contain comparable corpora for each of at least a dozen European languages, each being a balanced sample of one hundred novels from the period 1840 to 1920, together with metadata concerning their production and reception. We hope that it will become a reliable basis for comparative work in data-driven textual analytics. The focus of the ELTeC encoding scheme is not to represent texts in all their original complexity, nor to duplicate the work of scholarly editors. Instead, we aim to facilitate a richer and better-informed distant reading than a transcription of lexical content alone would permit. At the same time, where the TEI encourages diversity, we enforce consistency by permitting representation of only a specific and quite small set of textual features, both structural and analytical. These constraints are expressed by a master TEI ODD, from which we derive three different schemas by ODD chaining, each associated with appropriate documentation

    Children's creative collaboration during a computer-based music task

    The purpose of this study was to identify and analyse specific instances of transactive communication as children engaged in a paired melody writing task using a computer-based composing environment. Transactive communication has been identified as one of the features of general collaborative engagement that is most helpful in an educational sense, and which makes collaborative learning an important tool for learning and teaching. The paper reports the results of an empirical study in which a group of 10 and 11 year olds worked in pairs to compose short melodies using computers. Analysis of between-pupil dialogue suggested that levels of transactive communication varied between pairs, and also within pairs as pupils took on different roles at the computer. Factors of individual difference, such as musical expertise or whether the pair were friends, did not appear to have a significant influence on the extent of, or nature or, transactive communication
