Discussion on text modelling

Two main alternatives to XML:

  • range based model (for annotations)
  • variant graph (for collation)

Tara is using (with Collatex) a graph-based model more complex sthan Schmidt's one.

Paolo is interested in a text model that can represent textual layers (graphical, alphabetical, linguistic; see Orlandi, Informatica testuale)

  • Tara: we can stretch Schmidt's graph model to represent the different Orlandi's layers. They're still graphs
  • Gregor: variant graphs are not suitable for this; they're not variants

Gregor presents the range-based model and LMNL in particular

  • Alex made his master's thesis on LMNL
  • LMNL seems to be fit for Orlandi's 'textual layers'


Setting the agenda: a round-up on the interests of each of the participants

  • practicality: what can we build on top of e.g. a range-based model (from the datastore to the presentation layer)
  • query/search functions on top of a text model
  • variant graph vs. range-based models
  • processing (equivalent to XSLT?), querying (equivalent to XPath/XQuery)
  • variant graph: traversal patterns?
  • interfaces, APIs, JS libraries
  • problem of variation and how it is handled on different (conceptual) layers of a text
  • common model? can we find a generalized model incorporating features from the variant graph and a range-based model
  • bridge the gap!
  • integration scenarios; import of existing data, multiple use cases on top of those (what is the smallest thing that could possibly work? -- how do we get there)
