Abstrakt

This paper describes a proposal for combining linguistic and domain specific annotation for supporting Cultural Heritage and Digital Humanities research, exemplified in the fairy tale domain. Our goal is to semi-automatically annotate fairy tales, in particular to locate and mark up fairy tale characters and the actions they are involved in, which can be subsequently queried in a corpus by both linguists and specialists in the field. The characters and actions are defined in Propp's structural analysis to folk tales, which we aim to implement in a fully fledged way, contrary to existing resources. We argue that the approach devises a means for linguistic processing of folk tale texts in order to support their automated semantic annotation in terms of narrative units and functions.
