Corpus Encoding Standard (CES)


MULTEXT, along with EAGLES and the Vassar/CNRS collaboration (supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation), have developed a Corpus Encoding Standard that will "serve as a widely accepted set of encoding standards for corpus-based work... The CES is specifies a minimal encoding level that corpora must achieve to be considered standardized in terms of descriptive representation (marking of structural and typographic information) as well as general architecture (so as to be maximally suited for use in a text database). It also provides encoding specifications for linguistic annotation, together with a data architecture for linguistic corpora." The CES is available in SGML, and XML.
