It is well known that word aligned parallel corpora are valuable linguistic resources. Since many factors affect automatic alignment quality, manual post-editing may be required in some applications. While there are several state-of-the-art word-aligners, such as GIZA++ and Berkeley, there is no simple visual tool that would enable correcting and editing(More)
Accessing historical texts is often a challenge because readers either do not know the historical language, or they are challenged by the technological hurdle when such texts are available digitally. Merging corpus linguistic methods and digital technology can provide novel ways of representing historical texts digitally and providing a simpler access. In(More)
This paper describes an ongoing effort to digitize and annotate the corpus of Le Roman de Flamenca, a 13th-century romance written in Old Occitan. The goal of this project is twofold: The first objective is to digitize one of the earliest editions of the text and to create an interactive online database that will allow parallel access to a glossary, to(More)
It is well known that parallel corpora are valuable linguistic resources. One of the benefits of such corpora is that they allow for the building an annotated corpus for resource-poor languages via crosslanguage transfer. That is, given accurate alignment between a word from a source language and its equivalent in a target language, some linguistic(More)
In recent years, there has been growing interest in visualization methods for literary text analysis. While text mining and visualization tools have evolved into mainstream research methods in many fields (e.g. social sciences, machine learning), their application to literary studies still remains infrequent. In addition to technological challenges, the use(More)
