Reply relations in CMC: types and annotation

  • This paper analyses reply relations in computer-mediated communication (CMC), which occur between post units in CMC interactions and which describe references between posts. We take a look at existing practices in the description and annotation of such relations in chat, wiki talk, and blog corpora. We distinguish technical reply structures, indentation structures, and interpretative reply relations, which include reply relations induced by linguistic markers. We sort out the different levels of description and annotation that are involved and propose a solution for their combined representation within the TEI annotation framework.
