Part of the Text, Speech and Language Technology book series (TLTB, volume 37)

This chapter describes the Linguistic Annotation Framework (LAF) developed by the International Standards Organization TC37 SC4, which is to serve as a basis for harmonizing existing language resources, as well as developing new ones. We then describe the use of the LAF to represent the American National Corpus and its linguistic annotations.
