LangBank: Digital Infrastructure to Support the Study of Classical Latin and Historical German

The development of a joint, annotated corpus and accompanying learning modules for Latin and German prior to 1900 to support research and language learning.  The University of Tübingen and Humboldt University of Berlin are jointly requesting 156,000€ from DFG.

The LangBank Project seeks to promote students’ learning of Classical Latin and Historical German, and to facilitate the ability of more advanced scholars to access a wide range of annotated texts. This new system will rely on modern web-based methods for corpus analysis and distribution, online reading support and demand-driven, incidental tutoring of grammar and vocabulary, and learning analytic methods for tracking how students and scholars use the materials.
