HdtDep: a treebank and search engine for Greek word order study
HdtDep is a treebank and search engine based on the first book of Herodotus’ Histories. The structure of the sentences has been parsed applying a modified version of Mel’čuk’s dependency syntax, and has been encoded in an XML database. The search engine allows searching for precise dependency patterns involving specific grammatical categories or lexemes in exact sequences, and can easily be programmed through a user friendly graphic interface. This tool is especially designed for classicists and linguists investigating Greek word order—hence the choice of Herodotus’ prose as linguistic material—but can also be useful for teachers and language learners.
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
