Paolo Monella (Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities- Università di Palermo), Fuori dalla torre di Babele: interoperabilità e sistemi grafici pre-moderni
For digital philology based on pre-modern handwritten witnesses, interoperability and reuse of textual data and software is an open issue. This talk illustrates the ongoing work for the creation of a LOD ontology to formalize concepts such as glyph, allograph, grapheme (alphabetic grapheme, brevigraph, abbreviation mark, punctuation, logograph, ideogram), alphabeme, abbreviation, word, lemma. Since TEI aims to be theory-agnostic, it does not provide a shared model for those entities. As a consequence, each project produces transcriptional data following its own editorial conventions and, therefore, based on its own data model. The goal of the proposed LOD ontology is to facilitate both the exchange of textual data deriving from (hyper)diplomatic transcriptions and the development and reuse of modular open source software modules in the field.
