The Taming of a Dialect: Interlinear Glossing of Swiss German Text Messages


Ruef, Beni; Ueberwasser, Simone (2013). The Taming of a Dialect: Interlinear Glossing of Swiss German Text Messages. In: Zampieri, Marcos; Diwersy, Sascha. Non-standard Data Sources in Corpus-based Research. Aachen: Shaker Verlag, 61-68.

Abstract

The Swiss German dialects (SGD) have no fixed orthography. Furthermore, text messages contain a lot of abbreviations and forms of code-switching. To enable corpus search and the application of computational linguistic methods, the Swiss SMS corpus was normalized by means of interlinear glossing. This paper describes the tool developed for this task and the practical experiences gained.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
