In the class Computational Linguistic methods for Digital Humanities, WebAnno is being used to introduce students of the DH Master’s program to annotation concepts. Students are annotating in groups, following the full annotation workflow:

  • preparing documents,
  • setting up an annotation project,
  • distributing tasks to fellow students,
  • analyzing annotation disagreements and
  • making final decisions.

As tasks, we use both part of speech tagging and coreference resolution.
