Subject: Re: [Humanist] 33.479: an ontology for palaeography Dear Paolo, dear Peter, I don't even have a direct answer to your question about a Hjelmslevian ontology, but developed an ontology of microtypography (for the time around 1900). This ontology also consists of different concepts or abstraction levels of writing, for example protograph, letter, type, allograph, grapheme and archigrapheme. I formalized this ontology in RDF/OWL and implemented it in the context of a digital edition based on texts in XML/TEI. The main goal of my work was to make different fonts visible (and interpretable) in their text contexts and to explore the transfer of type/font/typeface features across types/fonts/typefaces. Ontology and prototype will be published in spring. Of course, typography and handwriting differ fundamentally at some points. Nevertheless, there are also many overlapping points, so I would be interested in a discussion as well. Please keep me updated. Best, Frederike _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
