Although recent years have witnessed a growth in the number of computational language resources and tools, a lot still needs to be done, especially with low-density languages. This is the case with all South Slavic languages and especially Montenegrin, the fourth standard of the once Serbo-Croatian language that has been re-codified only recently....

Maja Bitenc: Language in Motion from Idrijsko to Ljubljana
Chapter
Descriptive linguistic studies have long been based on data from language use (Kennedy 1998: 9); lexicology and lexicography above all are fields resulting from systematically collected texts (McEnery and Wilson 1996: 90). With the emergence of a large number of different types of corpora, corpus linguistic methodology began to be applied to text l...

Digitisation of cultural heritage in Slovenia falls below the European average. With the exception of corpus linguistics and literary history where richly annotated corpora and critical editions are plentiful and internationally renowned, datalization work on DH collections has been highly fragmented and largely incompatible due to different encoding standards used. This clearly shows that the requirements of supporting state-of-the art data-driven DH research has not yet been met in Slovenia which significantly hinders research in the national context but also its international visibility. The research programme addresses three broad research problems: 1) the development and integration of advanced workflows for creating and publishing reliable, interpretable, interoperable and richly annotated complex digital editions; 2) the development and promotion of novel interdisciplinary quantitative and qualitative methods for Slovenian DH; and 3) the development and evaluation of advanced technologies for the processing, enrichment and visualization of historical heterogeneous multilingual and multimodal data. The scientific framework of the proposed research programme is highly interdisciplinary but rooted in corpus and computational linguistics and machine learning of heterogeneous structured and unstructured collections from Slovenian contemporary history, periodical studies, political studies and anthropology that are both mono- and multilingual, and contain textual, speech and image data and metadata. Developing and integrating these methods into Slovene DH is crucial because of their importance and potential to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of past and present cultural phenomena in the European context. The programme will also contribute novel technologies to support digitization of DH research data and cultural heritage. The programme performs the complete cycle of DH research activities: capture, organization and storage; enrichment; analysis, visualization, interpretation, and dissemination of the results. While the methods and technologies developed within the programme are not limited to specific data collections, the programme will contribute 6 major new open-source datasets containing text, speech and images. It will improve methods for digitizing complex historical documents, develop novel methods for transcribing oral history recordings, and engage in development of internationally novel methods for processing images in historical documents. The programme will adapt language and text enrichment technologies to historical and dialectal language as well as develop support for exploring multilingual documents important for investigations of Slovenian history. The programme will develop advanced mixed methods for network, geospatial and temporal analysis of DH data.
