    knowledge that moved them But that idealized vision allowed each to change the worlds in which they lived and carry humanity a little farther We do not know what form such fundamental instruments as editions lexica encyclopedias atlases diagrams museum catalogues and archaeological site reports will assume but we know that the infrastructure that we design now will materially enable or constrict how the next generation will be able to read languages from the past scrutinize ancient artifacts and explore the historical spaces Perseus has a particular focus upon the Greco Roman world and upon classical Greek and Latin but the larger mission provides the distant but fixed star by which we have charted our path for over two decades Early modern English the American Civil War the History and Topography of London the History of Mechanics automatic identification and glossing of technical language in scientific documents customized reading support for Arabic language and other projects that we have undertaken allow us to maintain a broader focus and to demonstrate the commonalities between Classics and other disciplines in the humanities and beyond At a deeper level collaborations with colleagues outside of classical studies make good on the claim that a classical education generally provides those critical skills and that intellectual adaptability that we claim to instill in our students We offer the combination of classical and non classical projects that we pursue as one answer to those who worry that a classical education will leave them or their children with narrow idiosyncratic skills Within this larger mission we focus on three categories of access Human readable information digitized images of objects places inscriptions and printed pages geographic information and other digital representations of objects and spaces This layer of functionality allows us to call up information relevant to a longitude

    Dynamic Lexicon The National Endowment for the Humanities 2008 284 999 This project involves creating new reference works for Greek and Latin from a large collection of texts and structured knowledge sources such as treebanks within the cyberinfrastructure of a digital library Built on the technologies of parallel text analysis including word sense induction and disambiguation and automatic syntactic parsing these reference works will allow us to present the possible senses for any Greek or Latin word while also providing syntactic information and statistical data about its use in any collection of texts or any subset of that collection not simply for example how oratio is used in all of Latin literature but only within the works of Cicero where it means oration or more generally the power of oratory or the works of Jerome where it means prayer including quantified measures of its syntactic usage These methods will also let users search a text not only by word form but also by word sense syntactic subcategorization and selectional preference Cybereditions The Mellon Foundation 2008 471 000 This project explores the problem of mining high value data for a demanding scholarly audience from the image books in emerging large digital collections Our work begins where the services currently under development by libraries and by Internet giants such as Google end we seek to identify ways by which we can bridge the gap between those general services and the services that we will need so that cyberinfrastructure can support scholars working with textual materials We are building a workflow that leads from page image to actionable data Humanists need access to the earliest phases of processing we need to be able to define the page layouts of editions and commentaries and to recognize languages such as classical Greek for which general purpose optical character recognition OCR engines provide little support An application programming interface API that provides access to the searching or other services does little good if the crucial data has already been lost This project will result in three basic deliverables First we will produce a testbed of image books with editions commentaries and translations of the major classical authors often in multiple editions that survive from antiquity We will make this testbed available as a part of the Open Content Alliance OCA where it will be freely available Second we will provide documentation and evaluate methods for each stage of the workflow Third we will provide the code and data sets that we produce under a creative commons license Data sets in this case will include the textual data that we have been able to extract with automatically added markup This markup will include automatically suggested corrections as well as original OCR output allowing for flexible searching PhiloGrid The National Endowment for the Humanities and the Joint Information Systems Committee 2008 240 000 shared evenly with Imperial College London PhiloGrid a collaboration of the Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University in the United States and the Internet Centre

  • Open Source Code
    providing a suite of services for interacting with textual collections While as a whole it provides an integrated reading environment its individual services are designed to be modular and can be grouped into three different classes Linguistic support The Hopper itself is language independent but the code includes native support for Greek Latin and Arabic Given a source text in any one of those three languages either a text bundled with the code release or a TEI compliant XML text of the user s own it provides services for automatic lemmatization linking inflected word forms to the dictionary entries from which they re derived and morphological analysis identifying for instance that the Latin word amor is a singular masculine nominative noun At a broader level it also enables corpus research by automatically generating word and lemma frequency information for the entire collection of texts supplied to it Contextualized reading Since the Hopper is the underlying code base for the Perseus Digital Library it reflects that same emphasis on being an integrated reading environment much of its power derives not simply from isolated textual services but in the knowledge that emerges from the interaction of texts themselves Users can take advantage of this contextualization with the Greco Roman and Arabic texts provided or specify themselves the higher level relationship between their own texts e g that document X is a translation of document Y in order to create a reading environment where passages in a source text are accompanied by secondary resources such as translations and commentaries Contextualized reading also intersects with linguistic support since dictionaries are also supported as secondary resources a reader can find not simply what dictionary entry a word in a source text is derived from but also a definition of what that word means The library environment also includes an architecture for soliciting user contributions in the form of voting this is implemented online in the Perseus Digital Library in the form of user votes for morphological forms but can be extended as well to accommodate other varieties of annotation Searching Users can not only read passages from texts but use a suite of search tools to find what they are looking for in any of the languages the Hopper supports These search tools include word and phrase searches in individual texts or collections These searches include the option to search all possible inflections of a word making them extremely powerful for morphologically rich languages like Greek Latin and Arabic e g a lemmatized search for the root form sum would also find documents containing the inflected forms est and sunt For Classical texts which have a well adopted citation scheme users can navigate a text by typing canonical abbreviations e g Thuc 1 24 The Hopper also provides functionality to search and browse the tagged named entities places people dates and date ranges in a corpus and includes an architecture for presenting archaeological artifact and image data which is separate from the reading environment Extensibility
