This publication offers a special chance for developing a constant snapshot of collaborative guide annotation for usual Language Processing (NLP). NLP has witnessed significant evolutions some time past 25 years: to start with, the intense luck of laptop studying, that's now, for higher or for worse, overwhelmingly dominant within the box, and secondly, the multiplication of assessment campaigns or shared initiatives. either contain manually annotated corpora, for the learning and overview of the systems.
These corpora have steadily turn into the hidden pillars of our area, offering nutrition for our hungry desktop studying algorithms and reference for assessment. Annotation is now where the place linguistics hides in NLP. besides the fact that, guide annotation has principally been overlooked for it slow, and it has taken it slow even for annotation directions to be famous as essential.
Although a few efforts were made in recent times to handle a number of the matters provided through handbook annotation, there has nonetheless been little learn performed at the topic. This e-book goals to supply a few important insights into the subject.
Manual corpus annotation is now on the center of NLP, and continues to be mostly unexplored. there's a desire for handbook annotation engineering (in the feel of a accurately formalized process), and this publication goals to supply a primary step in the direction of a holistic method, with an international view on annotation.
