Dear Colleagues,

we're currently working on the corpus of 18th-21st century German translations of 'Othello' (the corpus is accessible with some purpose-built analysis tools at www.delightedbeauty.org/vvvclosed) and we encountered a problem while lemmatizing the data. A dictionary found at the Institut für Deutsche Sprache and WebLicht tool do not work well with antiquated and contracted (poetic and vernacular) word forms (eg.* Euer/Eur/Eu'r* or *Abentheuer/Abentheu'r/Abenteuer/Abenteu'r/Abenteur*). Does anybody know a dictionary that would contain such old orthographic variants?

Regards, Angelika Peljak PhD student at Swansea University

PS. In case of any specific questions concerning the corpus please contact prof. Tom Cheesman (t.cheesman at swansea.ac.uk). -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
