ready Language resource management -- Semantic annotation framework (SemAF) -- Part 1: Time and events (SemAF-Time, ISO-TimeML)

Abbreviation: ISO 24617-1:2012

General Information
Temporal information in natural language texts is an increasingly important component to the understanding of those texts. ISO 24617 (known as SemAF-Time) specifies a formalized XML-based markup language called ISO-TimeML, with a systematic way to extract and represent temporal information, as well as to facilitate the exchange of temporal information, both between operational language processing systems and between different temporal representation schemes. It was created to accommodate two pre-existing documents for annotating temporal information, TimeML 1.2.1 and TimeML Annotation Guidelines, into ISO international standards.
