Abstract:
This article describes an API for exploring the logical document and the logical network structure of wikis. It introduces an algorithm for the semantic preprocessing, filtering and typing of these building blocks. Further, this article models the process of wiki generation based on a unified format of syntactic, semantic and pragmatic representations. This three-level approach to make accessible syntactic, semantic and pragmatic aspects of wiki-based structure formation is complemented by a corresponding database model – called WikiDB – and an API operating thereon. Finally, the article provides an empirical study of using the three-fold representation format in conjunction with WikiDB.
