Dear colleague,

You are cordially invited to join the webinar release of the EDGeS Diachronic Bible Corpus:

- Friday 28 May 2021

- Zoom link: https://gu-se.zoom.us/j/64960898660?pwd=RXU4L1JOWC9DNjVIUDdRQTVVOTFoUT09

The EDGeS Corpus is a newly compiled corpus of historical Bible translations in English, Dutch, German and Swedish from the fourteenth century until the present day. The corpus brings together thirty-six historical Bible translations in one searchable format and connects them with each other on the verse level. This makes the EDGeS Corpus a so-called parallel corpus in both the synchronic and diachronic dimensions. The corpus is compiled as part of the research project The rise of complex verb constructions in Germanic<https://spraakbanken.gu.se/projekt/complex-verb-constructions> (sponsored by the Swedish Research Foundation, based at the University of Gothenburg) and is made freely available for other researchers to use and build upon.

Program of the release webinar:

- Potential of historical parallel texts for studying language change

- Digitizing historical Bible translations through crowd sourcing

- Choices and challenges in building a historical Bible corpus

- Demonstration of the EDGeS Corpus

- Some preliminary results

- Future plans


- Evie Coussť (University of Gothenburg)

- Gerlof Bouma (University of Gothenburg)

- Nicoline van der Sijs (Dutch Language Institute, Leiden)

- Eloisa Ruppert (KULeuven)
