Is Identity in the eye of the beholder? 

Phil Dawes - Stuff - Blog Archive - Is Identity in the eye of the beholder?: "Is Identity in the eye of the beholder?
A commonly held principle of identity in within RDF circles is that the owner of the URI gets to pick what it identifies. That sounds perfectly reasonable in theory, but unfortunately my experience with using RDF at work suggests that in practice the meaning of a URI tends to skew a bit with usage and context."

E-MELD - Tools & Resources 

E-MELD - Tools & Resources: "Traditionally markup has been defined as systematic annotation designed to reveal a text's typographical and informational structure. Linguistic markup might be broadly described as annotation representing: (a) the grammatical structure of text couched in the focus language and (b) the structure of documents presenting a linguistic description or analysis of such text. These two kinds of linguistic markup are required in the digitization of such language documentation as paradigms, word lists, dictionary entries, and glossed text.
Rather than proposing specific markup recommendations as in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), the E-MELD group at Arizona has proposed constructing an environment for comparing data sets using possibly different markup schemes. The central feature of the proposed environment is an ontology of morphosyntactic terms with multiple inheritance and a variety of relations holding among the terms."
