Dear colleagues,

theá/Historical Corpora and Variation/áworkshop will be hosted by the University of Cagliari, Italy, on 4th-5th April 2019. Please find below details of the meeting and the call for papers.

CONFERENCE WEBSITE http://convegni.unica.it/hicov[1]

MEETING DESCRIPTION The need for a quantitative approach in historical linguistics has recently been highlighted by Jenset and McGillivray (2017): in this view, the creation of annotated historical corpora is a fundamental aspect. As Lass (2004) has pointed out, a proper historical corpus should be characterized by maximal information preservation, no irreversible editorial intervention, and maximal flexibility. In order to accomplish Lass’s desiderata, the collection of metadata, which help situate the text in its context, and the preservation of philological annotation are of crucial importance for a correct interpretation of language data in historical texts (Curzan 2009, Vazquez and Marques Aguado 2012). The aim of this workshop is to reflect on the creation and annotation of historical corpora with a particular focus on the preservation of “contextual” information.
