LiLa: Linking Latin

Building a Knowledge Base of Linguistic Resources for Latin

Extract of the IT-TB Latin treebank annotated according to UD standards

New UD conversion of the Index Thomisticus Treebank

On 15th November Universal Dependencies (UD) released version 2.3 of its set of annotated treebanks. Thanks to the work of our very own Flavio M. Cecchini and Marco C. Passarotti, and of our Czech colleague Dan Zeman (Prague), UD now includes a new and improved conversion of the Index Thomisticus Treebank (IT-TB). 🤠

Between 9th-11th January 2019 Greta will be teaching at the University of Poitiers, France, at the Digital Humanities doctoral winter school Encoder/Exploiter/Diffuser: Les humanités numériques dans les projets doctoraux. The school is targeted at newcomers to the field and takes a bottom-up approach, as tutorials will be based on the specific needs of the doctoral projects presented by the students.
