    • NOTES:
      • An annotation is defined as extra information associated with a specific point in a document or piece of information, often presented as a note with comments or explanations, and can be found in the margins of book pages or within digital media like web and text annotation.
      • In literature, grammar, and educational contexts, annotation practices include highlighting, commenting, and summarizing key sections to engage students more actively with the material, employing both traditional and digital tools for collaborative learning.
      • Text and film annotation techniques involve adding comments or explanations within films or on videos, aiding in the analysis and reflection on preconceived notions, and can be enhanced with descriptions for deeper insights, as advocated by anthropologist Clifford Geertz.
      • Marginalia, annotations in the margins of manuscripts, provide insight into historical reading practices and have gained popular interest online, showcasing the varied and sometimes humorous notes made by readers of the past.
      • In software engineering, annotations are used in text documents through markup languages like XML and HTML for adding machine-readable semantic information, and in source control systems to track changes by annotating code lines with contributor information.
      • Semantic labelling of tabular data involves assigning annotations from ontologies to improve data understanding and interoperability, using techniques like geometric, probabilistic, logical, and non-ML approaches for tasks such as entity linking and column data-type detection.
      • Legal and linguistic uses of annotations include providing commentary and interpretations of statutes in legal research and transforming data for computer-aided linguistic analysis, respectively, demonstrating the wide-ranging applications of annotations across disciplines.
