Trends, Fashions, Patterns, Norms, Conventions...and Hypertext Too.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n1 p36-43 Jan 2001
Outlines the theory behind the formation of language conventions, then reveals conventions evolving in the community of people writing hypertext on the Web. Demonstrates how these conventions can be used to augment and shift the meaning of already published hypertexts. Describes the system called InCommonSense, which reuses particular hypertext language conventions to retrieve and assemble annotations and descriptions on the Web. (AEF)
