CMC-Corpora 2017 Conference and CLARIN UI Event: Bolzano, Italy (4 October)

CMC-Corpora 2017 Conference and CLARIN UI Event: Bolzano, Italy (4 October) | TELT | Scoop.it


5th Conference on CMC and Social Media Corpora for the Humanities (3-4 Oct 2017) and CLARIN UI Event (4 Oct 2017) @ Eurac Research, IT


The goal of the event is to give a practical introduction into the annotation of language data from genres of computer-mediated communication (CMC) and social media using the formats of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). In an introductory section participants will learn about the general architecture of TEI encoding schemas and about rules for the creation of so-called customizations which allow for extending the use of TEI with textual genres and in domains which are not yet covered by the current version of the TEI guidelines. Examples for TEI customizations are the representation schemas for CMC/social media genres developed in the TEI special interest group “computer-mediated communication”. In a hands-on session, participants will learn how to use these customizations to create a basic TEI representation for their own CMC/social media data. For this purpose participants may bring samples from their own data/corpora or select a sample from collections of Wikipedia talk pages in several languages prepared by the instructors. Format specifications for participants’ own data will be announced in advance. For the hands-on session, participants will be asked to bring a laptop computer with WLAN and a full or trial license of the oXygen XML editor. The tutorial is funded as a CLARIN User Involvement Event and will be held in association with the 5th Conference on CMC and Social Media Corpora for the Humanities (cmccorpora17), held Oct 3rd & 4th @ Eurac Resarch, Italy.

Van der Zwaard: Patterns of (negotiated) interaction during telecollaboration between NSs and advanced NNSs

Dyadic communication between Australian and Dutch participants during a digital task designed as part of a telecollaboration project

The research project focuses on the occurrence of negotiation of meaning (or absence thereof) during one - to - one interaction via two forms of synchronous computer - mediated communication (SCMC): video call (or video call) and instant chat - messaging (written chat).

The studies aim to combine two of the most significant trends in L2 - education: digital technology and task - based language teaching (TBLT). Research into the efficacy of communication through different digital tools within L2 - learning environments is still underdeveloped, although the 21st - century networked society is entering the language classroom and educators are urged to include digital communication in (academic) language acquisition curricula. Negotiation of meaning studies have proven to be a prolific research area, although different claims have been made concer ning occurrence and effect and only recently have investigations started to explore the implications of negotiation of meaning during synchronous computer - mediated com munication. The studies in this book attempt to contribute to this budding area of research.
