Fransen, Theodorus. (2020). Automatic morphological analysis and interlinking of historical Irish cognate verb forms. In Elliott Lash, Fangzhe Qiu, & David Stifter (Eds.), Morphosyntactic Variation in Medieval Celtic Languages: Corpus-based approaches (pp. 49-84). Berlin: De Gruyter.
The main aim of the author’s research project is to use computational approaches to gain more insight into the historical development of Irish verbs. One of the objectives is to investigate how a link between the electronic Dictionary of the Irish language (eDIL),1 covering the period c. 700–c. 1700, but focussing on Early Irish (7th–12th centuries), and the nascent Foclóir Stairiúil na Gaeilge ‘The Historical Dictionary of Irish’, 2 covering the period 1600–2000, could be implemented. Such a link will be hugely beneficial for scholars operating at the intersection of the medieval and modern period (see Table 1), who currently lack a comprehensive lexical resource for the “intermediate” early modern period.
