In this paper, we explore several ways as to computing simila rity between medieval text variants from German. In comparing these texts, we appl y methods from word and sentence alignment and compute cosine similarity based on char a ter and part-of-speech ngrams. The resulting similarity (or distance) scores are visualiz ed by phylogenetic trees; the methods correctly reproduce the well-known distinction between Mi ddle and Upper German (“Mitteldeutsch” vs. “Oberdeutsch”).
