CLARIN K(nowledge)-Centre for CMC Documentation

We offer expertise on language resources and technologies for Computer-Mediated Communication and Social Media Corpora. We can be contacted via email to helpdesk @ THIS DOMAIN. There, we offer additional clarifications regarding this documentation and support in using, modifying, producing, or publishing CMC resources and technologies. For more general questions, also consider joining the European group of researchers interested in the development and processing of CMC corpora @ Google Groups.

As we are a young K-centre, our documentation is still under development. Once we have collected enough input, we will be adding a FAQ section with your most pressing questions. We are also interested in your thoughts on missing or wrong information.

In the meantime, we have already started to summarise important information for the two central topics of our K-centre:

  • FAIR best practices when creating a new CMC corpus
  • CMC-TEI about a TEI standard for the representation of the structural and linguistic peculiarities of CMC
