Background and Motivation

Co-organized by DARIAH, the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW), Inria (Paris, France) and the Belgrade Center for Digital Humanities, with the support of the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Clarin and DARIAH-DE, the Lexical Data Master Class will take place in Berlin at the BBAW from 4 to 8 December 2017.

This Master Class is part of a joint French-German program supported by the BMBF and MESRI (French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation).

The masterclass will cover a wide range of topics ranging from general models for lexical content and TEI-based representation of lexical data to managing digital lexica as online resources and working efficiently with XML editors. The participants will have a chance to attend two keynote talks as well as different sessions on a variety of lexicon-related topics, as well as to consult with experts on their own dictionary projects.

Keynote speakers will be James Pustejowksy (Brandeis University) and Frieda Steurs (KU Leuven).

Training material produced for and during the master-class will be converted, revised and submitted for peer-reviewed publication  in #dariahTeach (https://teach.dariah.eu/), an online training platform, partially as supplements to the existing #dariahTeach course on Digitizing Legacy Dictionaries, and partially in the form of dariahTeach Workshops (on topics such as “XPath for Lexicographers” or “Representing Morphological Data in Digital Lexica”).

Dictionary samples used and annotated during the Master Class will be published in the ENEL WG2 / PARTHENOS GitHub repository.
