03 Normalization

Computer-mediated communication (CMC) language significantly diverges from the standard language, posing challenges for current automatic text annotation tools.

This step is critical as both lemmatization and morphosyntactic annotation of CMC language rely on these normalized forms (─îibej et al. 2016).
