The theoretical foundations of givenness annotation

image of The theoretical foundations of givenness annotation

This article discusses the theory and practice of givenness annotation as applied in the PROIEL corpus, a corpus of old Indo-European New Testament translations. The annotation scheme that we use is based on Discourse Representation Theory (DRT). In the first part, we show how our tags relate to DRT concepts. In the second part, we survey some problems that often arise in practical annotation and show how theoretical awareness can help us overcome them. Finally, we compare our scheme to those used in other annotation projects, and evaluate it based on interannotator agreement rates.
