In this paper, we present various visualizations for the Text Re-use found between texts of a collection to support humanists in answering a broad palette of research questions. When juxtaposing all texts of a corpus in the form of tuples, we propose the Text Re-use Grid as a distant reading method that emphasizes text tuples with systematic or repetitive(More)
"Users of this or any edition are warned that the textual variants presented by citations from Plato in later literature have not yet been as fully investigated as is desirable". This shortcoming, characterized by Kenneth Dover (Dover, 1980) is still existent and is unlikely to be corrected quickly by traditional research techniques. Textual reuse plays an(More)
In this paper we give an overview of our work on a new research project, which brings together ancient texts and modern methods from the field of text mining. The project is structured so that is comprises data, algorithms, and applications. In this paper we first give a short introduction of the current state of the art. After that we describe what eAQUA(More)
Text re-use describes the spoken and written repetition of information. Historical text re-use, with its longer time span, embraces a larger set of morphological, linguistic, syntactic, semantic and copying variations, thus adding complication to text-reuse detection. Furthermore, it increases the chances of redundancy in a digital library. In Natural(More)
Research in the field of Digital Humanities, also known as Humanities Computing, has seen a steady increase over the past years. Situated at the intersection of computing science and the humanities, present efforts focus on making resources such as texts, images, musical pieces and other semiotic artifacts digitally available, searchable and analysable.

Text reuse is a common way to transfer historical texts. It refers to the repetition of text in a new context and ranges from nearverbatim (literal) and para-phrasal reuse to completely non-literal reuse (e.g., allusions or translations). To improve the detection of reuse in historical texts, we need to better understand its characteristics. In this work,(More)
The metre of the Roman comic poet Plautus (flourished ca. 200 B.C.) still leaves one mystified. Although the scientific work of the 19th and early 20th century has established a number of important rules and licences, the exact range of these laws and licences remains a matter of debate. Taking into account these many open questions it is not surprising(More)
