Subject: A WIKI for Genre Research
E-mail this message to a friend
the purpose of the WebGenreWIKI is to facilitate the sharing of information
and resources on all aspects of genre, web genre and other related
discourse categories, such as style, register, sentiment, or authorship.
This wiki has spawned from passionate discussions started at the RANLP 2007
Workshop on genre in Bovorets (http://www.sics.se/use/genre-ws/), which
followed a stimulating CL 2007 Colloquium on webgenre in Birmingham
The wiki is still very much under construction. Actually, at the current
stage it is more like a discussion forum than a stabilized archive. For
this reason, you are all invited to visit the new wiki and to make your own
contributions to it.
Anybody can edit the text setting up an account and logging into the wiki.
The wiki also contains a Genre Collection Repository with links to publicly
available genre corpora. You are very welcome to add your genre collections
to this page in order to share them with other researches. We strongly
foster experimental replicability and cross-comparisons to accelerate
advances in genre research.
Many thanks to all those who have enthusiastically participated in the
genre discussions recorded in the wiki.
Please, feel free to send comments and suggestions to the wiki moderators:
