Next: Turn Name Up: The Structure of a Previous: Transliteration   Content


A turn starts with the turn name, followed by a blank space. After that it is possible to specify with a marker in which language the respective turn is spoken. This might become necessary if the dialogue is multilingual. The turn as a whole can also be specified as Off-Talk (speech not relevant to the SmartKom system). Here again turn name and marker are separated by a blank space. Within the turn body all audible events, syntactic-semantic markers and comments are separated by blank spaces. At each end of line within a turn a line break has to be created, a new line always begins with a blank space. The last turn element in a turn ends in a line break without any blank spaces following.
