The sixth chapter illustrates how the automatic annotation of the different modes of speech, writing, and thought presentation in 19th-century narrative fiction may be performed on the basis of repetitive lexico-grammatical features and by setting up rules based on the manual annotation of the corpus and facilitating it in larger data sets. The chapter proposes a number of formal diagnostic features for the identification of discourse presentation as well as procedures to help their automatic detection. The procedures described serve as basis for a tool for the automatic identification of discourse presentation which can be adopted to programs like Wmatrix (Rayson 2018) and WordSmith Tools (Scott 2017). The chapter furthermore critically reflects on the limits of automated procedures and the necessity to manually check the annotations and include contextual information for unambiguous identification of different types of discourse presentation.
