In the Nederlab project the Meertens Institute and her partner institutions Huygens ING, Instituut voor de Nederlandse Taal and Radboud University Nijmegen collect large digital collections with text material from 800 until present. These collections are merged into one large uniform text corpus, curated and enriched with linguistic annotations.
Linguists, historians en literary scholars can use the online Nederlab research portal to formulate and execute complex queries and immediately analyze and visualize the search results. During the DRONGO language festival we will not only demonstrate the possibilities of the portal, but you can also help us improve it. We will ask you to perform a few simple assignments. We will then use your experiences and suggestions to make our research portal more useful and more usable.
Friday 29 & Saturday 30 September
