This paper describes the design and implementation of the MATE work-bench, a program which provides support for the annotation of speech and text. It provides facilities for flexible display and editing of such annotations, and complex querying of a resulting corpus. The workbench offers a more flexible approach than most existing annotation tools, which(More)
This paper describes the lt nsl system (McKelvie et al, 1996), an architecture for writing corpus processing tools. This system is then compared with two other systems which address similar issues, the GATE system (Cunningham et al, 1995) and the IMS Corpus Workbench (Christ, 1994). In particular we address the advantages and disadvantages of an sgml(More)
The rapid growth in availability of high-quality recordings of natural spoken dialogue (and natural spoken material more generally) has encouraged us to to improve the interchange of transcripts of such material, in order that these resources be easy to exploit by the scientific community as a whole. In this paper, we describe a new SGML architecture which(More)
The MATE workbench is a tool which aims to simplify the tasks of annotating, displaying and querying speech or text corpora. It is designed to help humans create language resources, and to make it easier for different groups to use one another's data, by providing one tool which can be used with many different annotation schemes. Any annotation scheme which(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of the MATE workbench, a program which provides support for flexible display and editing of XML annotations, and complex querying of a set of linked files. The workbench was designed to support the annotation of XML coded linguistic corpora, but it could be used to annotate any kind of data, as it is not(More)
