Rethinking Critical Editions Of Fragmentary Texts By Ontologies (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Rethinking Critical Editions Of Fragmentary Texts By Ontologies
Author: Matteo Romanello

Abstract: This paper discusses the main issues encountered in the design of domain ontology to represent ancient literary texts that survive only in fragments, i.e. through quotations embedded in other texts. The design approach presented in the paper combines a knowledge domain analysis conducted through semantic spaces with the integration of well established ontologies and the application of ontology design patterns. After briefly describing the specific meaning of “fragment” in a literary context, the paper gives insights into the main conceptual issues of the ontology design process. Lastly, it outlines the overall architecture of protocols, services and data repositories which is required to implement a digital edition of fragments based on the proposed ontology.

When Printed Hypertexts Go Digital: Information Extraction from the Parsing of Indices (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: When Printed Hypertexts Go Digital: Information Extraction from the Parsing of Indices
Author: Matteo Romanello
Author: Monica Berti
Author: Alison Babeu
Author: Gregory Crane
Abstract: Modern critical editions of ancient works generally include manually created indices of other sources quoted in the text. Since indices can be considered as a form of domain speci c language, the paper presents a parsing-based approach to the problem of extracting information from them to support the creation of a collection of fragmentary texts. This paper rst considers the characteristics and structure of quotation indices and their importance when dealing with fragmentary texts. It then presents the results of applying a fuzzy parser to the OCR transcription of an index of quotations to extract information from potentially noisy input.
