Linguistics and Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities are at the crossing of traditional humanities disciplines through computational tools. Linguistics, as the scientific study of the human language in all its aspects – Historical Linguistics, Lexicology, Morphology, Semantics, Syntax, Terminology etc. – is increasingly becoming an essential discipline in the field of the Digital Humanities.

Linguistics is a domain of knowledge whose methods have been applied to understand the Humanities from the most remote times. Nowadays, the discipline faces the challenge to turn its traditional methods into computational ones. To achieve this goal, the research and subsequent applications require a deep understanding of theories and methods in Linguistics to think, design and implement computational applications. The standards (ISO, W3C, TEI consortium etc.) and formats are mandatory to make subject specific data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR Principles) to preserve heritage, the ultimate goal of Digital Humanities.

The articles should deal with the theories, methods and applications that might include any of the following (overlapping) approaches: controlled vocabularies, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, historical linguistics, information retrieval, knowledge organization, lexicography, LLOD, NLP, ontologies, semantic web, semantics, standards terminology, text and discourse analyses.

Articles related to any subject field (History, Geography, Medicine, Literature etc.,) exploring the interface between Linguistics and Digital Humanities are welcome.

Theoretical reflection on digital tools and methods descriptions for Digital Humanities purposes will be taken into consideration.
