Variations in Manuscripts (With reference to the Indic collections at Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania) (Book Section)
Title: Variations in Manuscripts (With reference to the Indic collections at Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania)
Author: Peter Scharf
Author: Anupama Ryali
Editor: Chaitali Dangarikar
Editor: Malhar Kulkarni
Abstract: Manuscripts vary in composition, script, hand, layout, design, color, numbering, and material, among other factors. Such variations reveal literary material not included in editions and also provide fundamental evidence for cultural and intellectual history. Variations and remarkable features of manuscripts in the Indic collections of Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania were discovered and annotated using the Sanskrit Image-Text Alignment software (SITA), developed in the NEH-funded project, ``Enhancing Access to Primary Cultural Heritage Materials of India''. The annotations allow systematic access to numerous types of remarkable features for the purpose of research and education.

Abstract: Sanskrit, the classical language of India, presents specific challenges for computational linguistics: exact phonetic transcription in writing that obscures word boundaries, rich morphology and an enormous corpus, among others. Recent international cooperation has developed innovative solutions to these problems and significant resources for linguistic research. Solutions include efficient segmenting and tagging algorithms and dependency parsers based on constraint programming. The integration of lexical resources, text archives and linguistic software is achieved by distributed interoperable Web services. Resources include a morphological tagger and tagged corpus.
