  • Intertextual Pointers in the Text Alignment Network

    • Abstract: The Text Alignment Network (TAN) is a suite of XML encoding formats intended to serve anyone who wishes to encode, exchange, and study multiple versions of texts (e.g., translations, paraphrases), and annotations on those texts (e.g., quotations, word-for-word correspondences). This article focuses on TAN’s innovative intertextual pointers, which, I argue, provide an unprecedented level of readability, interoperability, and semantic context. Because TAN is a new, experimental format, this article provides a brief introduction to the format and concludes with comments on progress and future prospects.

  • Interactive Tools and Tasks for the Hebrew Bible : From Language Learning
           to Textual Criticism

    • Abstract: This contribution to a special issue on “Computer-aided processing of intertextuality” in ancient texts will illustrate how using digital tools to interact with the Hebrew Bible offers new promising perspectives for visualizing the texts and for performing tasks in education and research. This contribution explores how the corpus of the Hebrew Bible created and maintained by the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer can support new methods for modern knowledge workers within the field of digital humanities and theology be applied to ancient texts, and how this can be envisioned as a new field of digital intertextuality. The article first describes how the corpus was used to develop the Bible Online Learner as a persuasive technology to enhance language learning with, in, and around a database that acts as the engine driving interactive tasks for learners. Intertextuality in this case is a matter of active exploration and ongoing practice. Furthermore, interactive corpus-technology has an important bearing on the task of textual criticism as a specialized area of research that depends increasingly on the availability of digital resources. Commercial solutions developed by software companies like Logos and Accordance offer a market-based intertextuality defined by the production of advanced digital resources for scholars and students as useful alternatives to often inaccessible and expensive printed versions. It is reasonable to expect that in the future interactive corpus technology will allow scholars to do innovative academic tasks in textual criticism and interpretation. We have already seen the emergence of promising tools for text categorization, analysis of translation shifts, and interpretation. Broadly speaking, interactive tools and tasks within the three areas of language learning, textual criticism, and Biblical studies illustrate a new kind of intertextuality emerging within digital humanities.

  • TEI-encoding of text reuses in the BIBLINDEX Project

    • Abstract: This paper discusses markup strategies for the identification and description of text reuses in a corpus of patristic texts related to the BIBLINDEX Project, an online index of biblical references in Early Christian Literature. In addition to the development of a database that can be queried by canonical biblical or patristic references, a sample corpus of patristic texts has been encoded following the guidelines of the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), in order to provide direct access to quoted and quoting text passages to the users of the https://www.biblindex.info platform.

  • A Classification of Manuscripts Based on A New Quantitative Method. The
           Old Latin Witnesses of John's Gospel as Text Case

    • Abstract: A new method for grouping manuscripts in clusters is presented with the calculation of distances between readings, then between witnesses. A classification algorithm (" Hierarchical Ascendant Clustering "), achieved through computer-aided processing, enables the construction of trees illustrating the textual taxonomy obtained. This method is applied to the Old Latin witnesses of the Gospel of John, and, in order to provide a study of a reasonable size, to a chapter as a whole (chapter 14). The result basically confirms the text-types identified by Bonatius Fischer, founder of the Vetus Latina Institute, while it invalidates the classification adopted by the current edition of the Vetus Latina of the Gospel of John.

  • Digital Greek Patristic Catena (DGPC). A brief presentation

    • Abstract: The project is to develop a database, which is planned to include all available information on the use of the Bible in the patristic works of Migne's Patrologia Graeca. Utilization of the data will be available through a web page equipped with necessary tools for developing data mining techniques and other methods of analysis. The main aim of the project is to revive the catenae, the ancient exegetical tool for biblical interpretation.

  • Computer - Assisted Processing of Intertextuality in Ancient Languages

    • Abstract: The production of digital critical editions of texts using TEI is now a widely-adopted procedure within digital humanities. The work described in this paper extends this approach to the publication of gnomologia (anthologies of wise sayings) , which formed a widespread literary genre in many cultures of the medieval Mediterranean. These texts are challenging because they were rarely copied straightforwardly ; rather , sayings were selected , reorganised , modified or re-attributed between manuscripts , resulting in a highly interconnected corpus for which a standard approach to digital publication is insufficient. Focusing on Greek and Arabic collections , we address this challenge using semantic web techniques to create an ecosystem of texts , relationships and annotations , and consider a new model – organic , collaborative , interconnected , and open-ended – of what constitutes an edition. This semantic web-based approach allows scholars to add their own materials and annotations to the network of information and to explore the conceptual networks that arise from these interconnected sayings .

  • Bioinformatics and Classical Literary Study

    • Abstract: This paper describes the Quantitative Criticism Lab, a collaborativeinitiative between classicists, quantitative biologists, and computerscientists to apply ideas and methods drawn from the sciences to the study ofliterature. A core goal of the project is the use of computational biology,natural language processing, and machine learning techniques to investigateauthorial style, intertextuality, and related phenomena of literarysignificance. As a case study in our approach, here we review the use ofsequence alignment, a common technique in genomics and computationallinguistics, to detect intertextuality in Latin literature. Sequence alignmentis distinguished by its ability to find inexact verbal similarities, whichmakes it ideal for identifying phonetic echoes in large corpora of Latin texts.Although especially suited to Latin, sequence alignment in principle can beextended to many other languages.

  • Integrated Sequence Tagging for Medieval Latin Using Deep Representation
           Learning

    • Abstract: In this paper we consider two sequence tagging tasks for medieval Latin:part-of-speech tagging and lemmatization. These are both basic, yetfoundational preprocessing steps in applications such as text re-use detection.Nevertheless, they are generally complicated by the considerable orthographicvariation which is typical of medieval Latin. In Digital Classics, these tasksare traditionally solved in a (i) cascaded and (ii) lexicon-dependent fashion.For example, a lexicon is used to generate all the potential lemma-tag pairsfor a token, and next, a context-aware PoS-tagger is used to select the mostappropriate tag-lemma pair. Apart from the problems with out-of-lexicon items,error percolation is a major downside of such approaches. In this paper weexplore the possibility to elegantly solve these tasks using a single,integrated approach. For this, we make use of a layered neural networkarchitecture from the field of deep representation learning.

  • QuotationFinder - Searching for Quotations and Allusions in Greek and
           Latin Texts and Establishing the Degree to Which a Quotation or Allusion
           Matches Its Source

    • Abstract: The software programs generally used with the TLG (Thesaurus Linguae Graecae)and the CLCLT (CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts) CD-ROMs are not wellsuited for finding quotations and allusions. QuotationFinder uses moresophisticated criteria as it ranks search results based on how closely theymatch the source text, listing search results with literal quotations first andloose verbal parallels last.

  • Measuring and Mapping Intergeneric Allusion in Latin Poetry using Tesserae

    • Abstract: Most intertextuality in classical poetry is unmarked, that is, it lacks objective signposts to make readers aware of the presence of references to existing texts. Intergeneric relationships can pose a particular problem as scholarship has long privileged intertextual relationships between works of the same genre. This paper treats the influence of Latin love elegy on Lucan’s epic poem, Bellum Civile, by looking at two features of unmarked intertextuality: frequency and distribution. I use the Tesserae project to generate a dataset of potential intertexts between Lucan’s epic and the elegies of Tibullus, Propertius, and Ovid, which are then aggregrated and mapped in Lucan’s text. This study draws two conclusions: 1. measurement of intertextual frequency shows that the elegists contribute fewer intertexts than, for example, another epic poem (Virgil’s Aeneid), though far more than the scholarly record on elegiac influence in Lucan would suggest; and 2. mapping the distribution of intertexts confirms previous scholarship on the influence of elegy on the Bellum Civile by showing concentrations of matches, for example, in Pompey and Cornelia’s meeting before Pharsalus (5.722-815) or during the affair between Caesar and Cleopatra (10.53-106). By looking at both frequency and proportion, we can demonstrate systematically the generic enrichment of Lucan’s Bellum Civile with respect to Latin love elegy.

  • Version Variation Visualization (VVV): Case Studies on the Hebrew Haggadah
           in English

    • Abstract: The ‘Version Variation Visualization’ project has developed online tools to support comparative, algorithm-assisted investigations of a corpus of multiple versions of a text, e.g. variants, translations, adaptations (Cheesman, 2015, 2016; Cheesman et al., 2012, 2012-13, 2016; Thiel, 2014; links: www.tinyurl.com/vvvex). A segmenting and aligning tool allows users to 1) define arbitrary segment types, 2) define arbitrary text chunks as segments, and 3) align segments between a ‘base text’ (a version of the ‘original’ or translated text), and versions of it. The alignment tool can automatically align recurrent defined segment types in sequence.Several visual interfaces in the prototype installation enable exploratory access to parallel versions, to comparative visual representations of versions’ alignment with the base text, and to the base text visually annotated by an algorithmic analysis of variation among versions of segments. Data can be filtered, viewed and exported in diverse ways. Many more modes of access and analysis can be envisaged. The tool is language neutral. Experiments so far mostly use modern texts: German Shakespeare translations. Roos is working on a collection of approx. 100 distinct English-language translations of a Hebrew text with ancient Hebrew and Aramaic passages: the Haggadah (Roos, 2015)

  • Dealing with all types of quotations (and their parallels) in a closed
           corpus: The methodology of the Project The literary tradition in the third
           and fourth centuries CE: Grammarians, rhetoricians and sophists as sources
           of Graeco-Roman literature

    • Abstract: The Project The literary tradition in the third and fourth centuries CE: Grammarians, rhetoricians and sophists as sources of Graeco-Roman literature (FFI2014-52808-C2-1-P) aims to trace and classify all types of quotations, both explicit (with or without mention of the author and/or title) and hidden, in a corpus comprising the Greek grammarians, rhetoricians and " sophists " of the third and fourth centuries CE. At the same time, we try to detect whether or not these are first-hand quotations, and if our quoting authors (28 in all) are, in turn, secondary sources for the same citations in later authors. We also study the philological (textual) aspects of the quotations in their context, and the problems of limits they sometimes pose. Finally, we are interested in the function of the quotation in the citing work. This is the first time that such a comprehensive study of this corpus is attempted. This paper explains our methodology, and how we store all these data in our electronic card-file.

  • Preprocessing Greek Papyri for Linguistic Annotation

    • Abstract: Greek documentary papyri form an important direct source for Ancient Greek. It has been exploited surprisingly little in Greek linguistics due to a lack of good tools for searching linguistic structures. This article presents a new tool and digital platform, " Sematia " , which enables transforming the digital texts available in TEI EpiDoc XML format to a format which can be morphologically and syntactically annotated (treebanked), and where the user can add new metadata concerning the text type, writer and handwriting of each act of writing. An important aspect in this process is to take into account the original surviving writing vs. the standardization of language and supplements made by the editors. This is performed by creating two different layers of the same text. The platform is in its early development phase. Future developments, such as tagging linguistic variation phenomena as well as queries performed within Sematia, are discussed at the end of the article.

  • Editing New Testament Arabic Manuscripts in a TEI-base: fostering close
           reading in Digital Humanities

    • Abstract: If one is convinced that " quantitative research provides data not interpretation " [Moretti, 2005, 9], close reading should thus be considered as not only the necessary bridge between big data and interpretation but also the core duty of the Humanities. To test its potential in a neglected field – the Arabic manuscripts of the Letters of Paul of Tarsus – an enhanced, digital edition has been in development as a progression of a Swiss National Fund project. This short paper presents the development of this edition and perspectives regarding a second project. Based on the Edition Visualization Technology tool, the digital edition provides a transcription of the Arabic text, a standardized and vocalized version, as well as French translation with all texts encoded in TEI XML. Thanks to another Swiss National Foundation subsidy, a new research project on the unique New Testament, trilingual (Greek-Latin-Arabic) manuscript, the Marciana Library Gr. Z. 11 (379), 12th century, is currently underway. This project includes new features such as " Textlink " , " Hotspot " and notes: HumaReC.

  • From manuscript catalogues to a handbook of Syriac literature: Modeling an
           infrastructure for Syriaca.org

    • Abstract: Despite increasing interest in Syriac studies and growing digitalavailability of Syriac texts, there is currently no up-to-date infrastructurefor discovering, identifying, classifying, and referencing works of Syriacliterature. The standard reference work (Baumstark's Geschichte) is over ninetyyears old, and the perhaps 20,000 Syriac manuscripts extant worldwide can beaccessed only through disparate catalogues and databases. The present articleproposes a tentative data model for Syriaca.org's New Handbook of SyriacLiterature, an open-access digital publication that will serve as both anauthority file for Syriac works and a guide to accessing their manuscriptrepresentations, editions, and translations. The authors hope that bypublishing a draft data model they can receive feedback and incorporatesuggestions into the next stage of the project.
