Short abstract

Historical corpora have been established as an empirical digital base for various types of linguistic studies. Annotations on these corpora have to balance between a diplomatic representation of historical text and its linguistic analysis. This requires a linguistic modelling of annotations to develop annotation guidelines and concepts, as well as assignment methods and corpus architectures. The working group thus focuses on established and new approaches which address these requirements for a structured exploration of historical corpus data.
