Annotation Levels

Our project takes into account several perspectives of oral language to proceed segmentation task :

  • a first segmentation level for French based on maximal units according to the Orfeo ANR guidelines
  • a simplified segmentation and annotation of maximal syntactic units in German
  • a segmentation in chunks for French  with the methodological approach developped in the LLL team
  • an online annotation experiment in German in which pauses are annotated with respect to their likelihood of being a segment boundary
  • a segmentation in prosodic prominences in French according to the Rhapsody ANR guidelines and discussed with Mathieu Avanzi during our workshop on prosody
  • Syntax
    • Microsyntax  : a segmentation in microsyntactic units in French.
    • Macrosyntax  : a segmentation in macrosyntactic units in French based on a methodological approach developped in SegCor taking on account both the Rhapsody ANR project and the Orfeo ANR project but with different propositions on the gestion of the nuclei
    • Illocutionary units : a pragmatic segmentation scheme based on the French macrosyntactic units adapted to the German language
    • a segmentation and annotation of syntactic units on several (hierarchichally dependent) layers:
      • Topological fields
      • Position of the finite verb
      • Maximal syntactic unit
  • a segmentation in German based on phenomena typical for spoken language
  • an explorating  segmentation in TRP (Transition-Relevance Place) and actions to propose an interactional segmentation for Multi-unit turns in concertation for German and French
