MARKUS (Web Resources)
Title: MARKUS
Author: Ho Hou Ieong
Author: Hilde De Weerdt
Abstract: MARKUS is a semi-automatic markup platform that is designed to automate the markup process of specific types of named entities (personal names, place names, temporal references, and official titles) in classical Chinese. Users can also tag their texts automatically by uploading their own lists of words or regular expressions, as well as edit or add any markup manually after the automatic markup process. A range of online reference tools have been integrated in the platform. Users can consult these reference sources while reading texts or verifying markup. The final results can be exported into tabular format for further statistical, temporal, spatial, and social network analysis.
