Description of Work

This article considers a preliminary model for the semantic marking of maritime texts from the colonial period in Latin America. The author first locates semantic marking as an intellectual activity, and proposes a general approach to the markup process. He then outlines a provisional design for the encoding of maritime texts, based on four functional categories, and subsequently identifies some of the procedural and conceptual problems that his scheme presents. The author concludes by reflecting on ways that issues of perspective are central when attempting to carry out semantic markup.
