The Department of Linguistics at SOAS presents:
Tibetan in Digital Communication II
Tibetan in Digital Communication is a research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, engaged in building a 1,000,000 syllable part-of-speech tagged corpus of Tibetan texts spanning the language’s entire history. In addition to the corpus, the project is developing a number of digital tools that allows for the corpus to be employed in many areas of humanities research, and enables other researchers to more easily develop their own corpora or software tools.
The corpus will itself be a powerful resource for scholars working with Tibetan language materials in a wide range of disciplines.
This workshop, held in the project’s final year, presents the progress achieved so far and presages future directions of research andcollaborations outside of academia.
