New tool workshop: First step: After reading [TEXT] and based on
New tool workshop:
First step:
After reading [TEXT] and based on our class discussions, develop TWO HYPOTHESES
Second step:
Create specific tags (digital instantiations) of the concepts developed during our inclass
textual analysis (intellectual ideas) using CATMA according to the following steps:
1. Navigate to http://www.catm
2. Download and install CATMA
3. Im port [TEXT] into CATMA (Make heavy use of the CATMA User Manual found at
a. Click on “Load Text/Markup”
b. Click “Open source file” and select your text.
c. Click Next.
d. Click Create a new Structure Markup Document.
e. Click “Change location“ to choose the folder in which your Structure
markup file ought to be saved. (if necessary)
f. Click Next to continue
g. Determine and select the document type
h. Be sure your text is being displayed correctly in the Preview pane
If it is not correct select an encoding in the File encoding pane
Click Refresh Preview and be sure the text is displayed correctly
i. Click Next
j. Deselect the Apostrophe as word separator
k. Select the Predom inant language
l. If there are contractions or character sequences you do not want to
separate, you can enter them with the Add entry button in the lower right
and can save that list of words
m. Click Next
n. In this dialogue window, you may enter inform ation about the text you have
chosen – but this is not obligatory.
o. Click Next
p. Select the type of text you are uploading - Prose, Speech, or Drama - and
click Finish
q. Click the Create User Markup button to create the file that you will m ark up
and that is associated with the source text.
r. Choose a file name for your User Markup file
s. After having saved your User Markup file, you can start to tag and analyse
your text in CATMA.
How to tag:
1. Select the part of the text you would like to tag
2. Right-click the selected part and choose “Create Tag” from the menu that opens
3. Enter a name for your tag according to your first hypothesis (from first step of
this assignm ent)
a. Choose the first hypothesis’ colour in which your tag ought to appear in the
b. Choose to which tagset your tag ought to belong (you can create different
tagsets to organize your tags, cf. 2.7).
c. Save your tag.
4. Do the same with your second hypothesis (and another color ;-))
How to change tag:
1. To change an existing tag, select it.
2. With “Insert Tag“, you can create a new tag that is subordinate to the tag you
have selected. In the tagset, it is organized in a tree structure.
3. With “Remove Tag“, you delete the tag and its labels in the text.
4. With “Edit Tag“ you can change the colour and the nam e of the selected tag.
Learning outcom e:
1. Demonstrate ability to effectively develop a tagging schema (based on your
hypothesis of important them es) and apply it to [TEXT] using CATMA Tagg er.
