Release of the WoPoss corpus and its user-friendly search interface
We are happy to inform you that we have recently released a sample of the WoPoss corpus – an annotated corpus for the investigation of the diachrony of modality in Latin – together with a user-friendly interface to query it.
WoPoss – A World of Possibilities. Modal pathways over an extra-long period of time: the diachrony of modality in the Latin language – is a project that aims at setting up and annotating in a fine-grained way a balanced corpus of Latin texts from the 3rd c. BCE to the 7th c. CE in order to investigate the evolution of lexical and morphological modal markers according to dedicated Guidelines.
A sample of the annotated corpus is now available and the modal passages can be queried at woposs.unine.ch/form.html
More annotated texts will be added in the next few months. If you have any query, we are happy to answer.
WoPoss is a project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (project no. PP0001_176778).
