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.
