Labelling Off-Talk

A turn can also be entirely labelled as Off-Talk.

Symbol <*tOOT>, <*tROT>

<*tROT> is chosen if the subject reads aloud from the screen, so-called `Read Off-Talk'. <*tOOT> is chosen in all other cases of speech that is not relevant to the SmartKom system (`Other Off-Talk'):

w425_pkd_001_AAA: <*tROT> <Ger"ausch> Kino ~Schlo"s ,
~Hauptstra"se und Kino<Z> <P> ~Hoelldobler .
<*tOOT> and <*tROT> are preceded and followed by a blank space (alternatively by a line break and a blank space).
