CLaSSES: Latin inscriptions and language variation

Giovanna Marotta, Francesco Rovai, Irene De Felice, Lucia Tamponi

Abstract


CLaSSES (Corpus for Latin Sociolinguistic Studies on Epigraphic textS) is a digital resource which gathers non-literary Latin texts (epigraphs, writing tablets, letters) of different periods and provinces of the Roman Empire. This corpus has been tagged
with linguistic and extra-linguistic information that allows quantitative and qualitative analysis of spelling variations in Latin sources. The resource is available on the web in open access and is structured in different sections: Rome and Italy, Roman Britain,
Egypt and Eastern Mediterranean, and Sardinia.

Parole chiave


Latin digital epigraphy, Latin non-literary texts, historical sociolinguistics
