A Linguistic Approach to Some Parameters of Layout: A Study of Enumerations

AAAI Conferences

Our first point is that layout must be seen as a combination of lexicosyntactic and visual features, which we call "formatting", rather than restricted to visual features. The article lays down the theoretical bases for a model of text architecture making explicit the relations between discursive and visual formulations. The corpus-based study of enumerations, which considers standard and nonstandard forms, enables us to put the architecture model to the test. We identify major markers (typographical, layout, lexico-syntactic markers), and arrive at fine-grained characterization and a classification of enumerations. As regards text organization, we show that in order to arrive at a complete and precise representation, we need to articulate and integrate the two models used: the architecture model and RST. In this paper, we present a linguistic approach to some parameters of layout. We will however refer to "formatting", rather than layout, as the relations between syntactic, typographic and layout features are central to our outlook (see section 1).


Facebook profile page design trials new Instagram-style grid layout

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Facebook is looking to give its profile pages a makeover. The site is testing a new design for its profile pages which will showcase past statuses and photos in a grid-style layout. The all-new design, which is currently rolling out to a small group of users, will be immediately familiar to anyone who uses Instagram. Markers for months and years appear in the grid, making it easy to quickly pinpoint when a certain post was shared on the website. The all-new profile page displays pictures and posts in a grid-style layout, similar to Instagram.



Adapting wording to layout

AAAI Conferences

Within a section, or a box, or a footnote, an entity is almost always mentioned first by a description. Even a decision to break a paragraph into two may require some rewording. Consider the following paragraph, adapted slightly from a patient information leaflet (ABPI, 1997).
