Abstract [en]

This paper explores the representation of speech in Early Modern English witness depositions. We demonstrate that Semino and Short’s (2004) framework of description, which has for the most part been used in explorations of present-day texts, is generally applicable to our historical data. Our study shows that factors such as the importance of the evidence cited and the clarity of the deposition narrative were crucial considerations in representing speech in different contexts.

Abstract [en]

An Electronic Text Edition of Depositions 1560–1760 (ETED) comprises faithful manuscript transcriptions of 905 depositions from various regions in England, presented in a collection of searchable computer files in different formats. In this article we first briefly describe the features of layout rendered in ETED and then focus on those that have not been represented in the edition. Among the features investigated are the use made of empty space on the manuscript pages, space lines, alignment, different types of indentation, and features of handwriting, e.g. the use of font changes and large and/or embellished letters.

We distinguish two types of depositions in ETED, church court documents and criminal court documents. The former were copied down in the locality of the court in question at various stages of the court process while the latter were compiled in different localities and sent up to the appropriate local, county or regional court. We show that this difference is one of the factors influencing the choices that scribes made in their layout practices. We also show that while there is a great deal of variation in the visual effects used, it is also clear that scribes aimed at distinguishing the different components of the depositions and highlighting important information, e.g. the date of the document and the names of the parties involved. Finally, we comment on the benefits of editors coding for layout features in the interest of computerized searches and other research purposes.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we present Mini-McCALL, a 1.3-million-word corpus of computer-mediated communication in the context of online English universitycourses.1 The data consist of three types of written communication – bothbetween students and between students and teachers – in English: discussionforum messages, e-mail messages, and documents handed in as assignments.This pilot corpus comprises the first stage of a proposed 10-million-word corpusof computer-assisted language learning based on the online English coursesoffered by the Department of Humanities at Mid-Sweden University (Mittuniversitetet).In what follows, we first consider e-learning – online, off-campus study,where the medium of instruction and communication involves computer technology– from a theoretical perspective, and the need for such a corpus as oursto facilitate research into this new learning environment, as well as into the languageused in e-learning. We then describe the structure and content of Mini-McCALL and highlight both the research potential of the material and studiescurrently underway, as well as looking forward to the future development of thefull Mid-Sweden Corpus of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (McCALL).Both Mini-McCALL and the ultimate McCALL corpus will be made freelyavailable to the research community.
