Fall 2014 release: more texts, more standardization

We’ve got a new release of material at www.copticscriptorium.org.

New stuff:

Additional texts:

  • more Sayings from the Coptic Apophthegmata Patrum
  • chapters of 1 Corinthians
  • additional chapters of the Gospel of Mark

Updated and corrected annotations (part of speech, language of origin) in previous corpora

Standardized field names for annotations and metadata across the corpora

Linguistic analysis views for all texts that have translations: aligned Coptic, part of speech tag, and translation in easy-to-read HTML visualizations:

On our acknowledgments page, each contributor has links to queries for their material in ANNIS

Coming very soon (hopefully in the next week):
blog posts about the texts, tools, and data models
updated TEI XML files of the corpora

Later in 2014 and early 2015:
Shenoute’s Not Because A Fox Barks
More Biblical material, including Greek alignment with the SBL Greek New Testament

Please let us know if you’re interested in contributing to the project! Have Coptic texts you’d like to put in the ANNIS search and visualization tool? Want to annotate any of the documents for biblical references, or something else?  Reply to this post or email C. Schroeder carrie [at] carrieschroeder [dot] com

Also: Let us know if you find any errors. We’ll show you how to fork us on GitHub and edit our data!
