Linguistic Corpora at the HZSK Repository
The reference corpus of Middle Low German and Low Rhenish texts is based on manuscripts, prints and inscriptions. It is intended to provide an insight into the culture of speech and writing in Middle Low German and Low Rhenish regions. This spectrum of texttypes can be used to trace the linguistic development on the base of diatopic and diacronic subcategorisation. The aim of the project is the publication of diplomatic transcribed, lemmatised and grammatically annotated texts. The processed data – especially on the grammatical level – enables a linguistic analysis of the Middle Low German and Low Rhenish language, which goes far beyond what was possible until now.
