This contribution presents the current status of the ERC project “LiLa: Linking Latin”, the main objective of which is to connect and exploit the wealth of existing linguistic resources for Latin by making them interoperable, through the creation of a Knowledge Base following Linked Data standards. We describe the textual and lexical resources link...

Chapter
This paper describes the steps taken to include data from the Lewis & Short bilingual Latin-English dictionary into the Knowledge Base of linguistic resources for Latin LiLa. First, data were extracted from the original XML and matched with entries in LiLa, overcoming ambiguities and structural inconsistencies in the source. Subsequently, senses we...

This paper describes the steps taken to model a valency lexicon for Latin (Latin Vallex) according to the principles of the Linked Data paradigm, and to interlink its valency frames with the lexical senses recorded in a manually checked subset of the Latin WordNet. The valency lexicon and the WordNet share lexical entries and are part of the LiLa K...
Chapter
Word and Paradigm approaches to derivational morphology have been increasingly discussed in the last three decades (since Bauer 1997, but also Jackendoff 1975). However, notwithstanding the many examples of the evidence of paradigmatic derivation described in Štekauer 2014, it is still not clear whether it is possible to envisage larger, all-embrac...

This paper presents the structure of the LiLa Knowledge Base, i.e. a collection of multifarious linguistic resources for Latin described with the same vocabulary of knowledge description and interlinked according to the principles of the so-called Linked Data paradigm. Following its highly lexically based nature, the core of the LiLa Knowledge Base...
Chapter
This chapter presents an investigation on the productivity of words derived from -sc-verbs attested in Classical Latin, as a way of adding to the rich debate on their semantic significance. The work is performed through the use of empirical data provided by the Word Formation Latin lexicon, a derivational morphology resource for Classical and Late...
Chapter
The Word Formation Latin (WFL) project has been awarded a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship to create a language resource consisting of a derivational morphological lexicon of the Latin language, which connects lexical elements on the basis of word formation rules. In WFL, lexemes are segmented and analysed into their derivational morphological com...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The LiLa: Linking Latin project was recently awarded funding from the European Research Council to build a Knowledge Base of linguistic resources for Latin. LiLa responds to the growing need in the fields of Computational Linguistics, Humanities Computing and Classics to create an interoperable ecosystem of resources and Natural Language Processing...
Article
Full-text available
WFL is a word formation based resource for Latin where words are analysed in their formative components and connected to each other on the basis of word formation rules. It represents a wide lexical resource for the study of Latin word formation. This paper describes how compounding is treated in the Word Formation Latin lexicon: the methodology an...
Chapter
Word Formation Latin (WFL) is a derivational morphology resource for Latin, where lemmas are analysed into their formative components, and relationships between them are established on the basis of Word Formation Rules (WFRs). This paper describes the steps taken to build the lexicon, the methodology used, and the advantages and drawbacks of the au...

These are three reviews for Digital Medievalist, published in order of acceptance. In the first review, Eleonora Litta reviews Bodard, Gabriel and Matteo Romanello’s (2016) Digital Classics outside the Echo-Chamber: Teaching, Knowledge Exchange and Public Engagement. Digital Classics Outside the Echo-Chamber is mainly addressed to Digital Humanists...

This paper aims at examining the diachronic distribution of one of the richest classes of nouns in Latin, namely those ending in-io. The work is performed through the combined use of a morphological analyser for Latin (Lemlat), and a database collecting all word forms occurring through different periods of Latin language (TF-CILF).

Recent years have seen a growing interest in research aimed at building new linguistic resources and Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools for derivational morphology. The current increased interest in both the theoretical and applicative aspects of word formation is strictly connected to the large need for automatic semantic processing of lingui...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Word Formation Latin (WFL) is a derivational lexicon of Classical Latin that connects lexical items on the basis of word-formation rules (WFRs). This paper describes the process of inserting the class of Latin-sc-verbs as a test case for discussing a number of linguistic theory issues arising from pigeonholing such a multiform class of verbs into a...

Conference Paper
This paper investigates the distribution of word formation data through network visualisation, as an entry point for the exploration / analysis of productivity in affixal derivation in Classical Latin. This study uses data from the Word Formation Latin lexicon, a derivational morphology resource for Latin, where entries are analysed into their form...
Conference Paper
This paper introduces the main components of the downloadable package of the 3.0 version of the morphological analyser for Latin Lemlat. The processes of word form analysis and treatment of spelling variation performed by the tool are detailed, as well as the different output formats and the connection of the results with a recently built resource...

Project
The LiLa: Linking Latin (2018-2023) project was awarded funding from the European Research Council (ERC) to build a knowledge base of linguistic resources for Latin. LiLa responds to the growing need in the fields of Computational Linguistics and Humanities Computing to create an interoperable ecosystem of NLP tools and resources for the automatic processing of Latin. To this end, LiLa makes use of Linked Open Data (LOD) practices and standards to connect words to distributed textual and lexical resources alike. Project website: https://lila-erc.eu
