Building a Knowledge Base of Linguistic Resources for Latin

Dante’s Latin Loanwords Online Now!

We just linked a glossary of Dante’s Latin loanwords to our Knowledge Base!

The Glossary of Latin loanwords from the Italian works of Dante Alighieri was developed by Giulia Pedonese during her PhD course in Italian linguistics and collects 765 Italian words which are Latin loanwords attested in the four Italian works by XIIIth Century writer and poet Dante Alighieri. The texts of these works (RimeVita NovaConvivio and Commedia) are taken from the same reference editions that form the basis of DanteSearch (, a digital corpus collecting Dante’s Italian and Latin works lemmatised with grammatical and syntactic marking.

Each Italian lexical entry is now linked to its Latin etymon in our Lemma Bank via the LemonEty ontology!
