Digitales Textlabor (Digital Text Lab)

DCA method fieldText analysis

Text Lab implements methods for literature scientific markup for text corpora und digital historical editions. It involves gamification as acquisition and quality control for literary markup method in research-oriented university teaching.
It conducts grammatical and fine-grained narratological and figurative analysis, identification of speech and thought representation types,  and the investigation of metaphor.

TrAIN aims to conduct research pertaining to two essential Digital Transformation processes, namely Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR), applied to historical data. The project focuses on the  letter collection from the Grimm Brothers. TrAIN compares the outputs produced by the HTR of the original letters and by the OCR of the printed edition, and investigates two common scholarly tasks: text reuse detection and authorship attribution. Text reuse algorithms are employed to align the OCR output with the HTR output, and author attribution techniques to identify the stylistic markers of the Grimm Brothers.

"Digital Publishing of the Liber Ordinarius"   

The project explores digital means for the transcription, presentation and evaluation of the text and its sources. Its focus is on the testing the usability of existing software for this purposes We experiment with a combination of different specialized tools for the different stages of preparing a source text edition, and also try to adapt tools designed for non-research-purposes, especially plagiarism detectors. We make use of highly specialist software such as Transkribus.

The idea of project LingLab is to create an innovative collaboration platform to concentrate the workflow of empirically working linguists into one system and provide a tool to ease research data management and data publication. With LingLab research projects can be publically accessed at a very early stage in the research process. By giving access to an automatically created data paper and the relevant material, linguistic data can be easily replicated and reused by other interested researchers. This ensures the sustainability of research materials and invites researchers to intensify networking and collaboration.
