Live long and prosper! Lessons from the TEI

9. The scope of intelligent markup

Even within the original scope of the TEI we have
  • basic structural and functional components
  • diplomatic transcription, images, annotation
  • links, correspondence, alignment
  • data-like objects such as dates, times, places, persons, events (named entity recognition)
  • meta-textual annotations (correction, deletion, etc)
  • linguistic analysis at all levels
  • contextual metadata of all kinds
  • … and so on and so forth

Is it possible to delimit encyclopaedically all possible kinds of markup?
