Abstract:Encoding standards such as TEI give scholars a great deal of flexibility in annotating texts to meet the particular needs of a study or project. Researchers necessarily make choices about which features of a text to highlight, what kinds of additional information to add, and what facts are left to be inferred from other sources of evidence apart from markup. Among the factors to be considered in designing or adopting text encoding procedures are the prospects for data reuse and generalization beyond the scope of the one's current project, investigating new questions about the texts that hadn't been anticipated, and planning for the integration of texts using other markup schemes. This paper discusses considerations motivating the ongoing design of a software framework for analysis of rhyming schemes in 19th century Russian poetry. Our current implementation is written in Prolog as an application of the BECHAMEL system for markup semantics analysis. The motivation for this choice was our wish to plan from the beginning for extensions to other encoding schemes and generalization to other kinds of analysis.
