Digital Grammar of Greek Documentary Papyri

Project: EU Horizon Europe: European Research Council: Starting Grant (H2020-ERC-STG)

Project Details

Description (abstract)

The aim of the PapyGreek project is to transform the existing digital corpus of Greek documentary papyri so that it yields to computational linguistic methods. This transformation project serves Greek and general historical linguistics, for whom the papyrological material has so far been very difficult to utilize. After the transformation process we can study the linguistic variations in the papyrological material, which again leads to more precise knowledge on the developments of the Greek language
