Papyrology and Linguistic Annotation

Friday, July 25, 2014

Marja Vierros (Helsinki) will give a lecture on “Papyrology and Linguistic Annotation: How can we make TEI EpiDoc XML corpus and Treebanking work together?”, as part of the Digital Classicist London & Institute of Classical Studies Seminars 2014 series.

Greek documentary papyri provide a rich source for linguists who wish to study Ancient Greek as it was written in everyday texts, preserved directly from antiquity. The corpus is already in digital form, but it does not contain linguistic annotation that would help linguists find interesting structures and forms. This paper presents a preliminary phase of a project focused on annotating the fragmentary and manifold papyrus material using a Dependency Treebank model.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
