Course description

The main objective of this working seminar is to show young scientists that the digital humanities have provided fundamental work tools for studying languages, both from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. The digital texts corpus and digital lexicography allow us, as well, to study the origin and evolution of these languages. We must not forget that many characteristics of current languages can be explained only from a historical point of view. The Romance languages will serve as an example to instruct the young scientists.

Topics

  • Lexicography
  • Digital Humanities
