A Linked Digital Environment for Coptic Studies

The creation and expansion of a suite of language processing tools to better analyze documents written in Coptic – the language of first millennium Egypt – and other ancient Near Eastern languages.

Building on our previous work in Natural Language Processing for Coptic, we will capitalize on recent advances in Digital Humanities & Computational Linguistics to strengthen tools & data available for Coptic. Specifically, we will harness Deep Learning methods to handle a variety of source materials, including OCR data & editions with varying orthography, enhance materials via Linked Open Data and automatic Named Entity Recognition, & integrate automatic syntactic analyses into our materials.
