Abstract

The session will offer an insight as to how the digital revolution and the emergence of new technologies may help medievalists in their study of Latin vocabulary. The contributors, all practising lexicographers or corpus linguists, will present an overall picture of the existing practices as well as two detailed case studies. In the first paper, the state-of-the-art tools available to a researcher of the medieval Latin language will be presented. The author of the second paper will show how the use of electronic dictionaries and corpora may support study of vocabulary related to the concept of hunger. The final paper will demonstrate the results of automatic extraction of food-related vocabulary from the Patrologia Latina.
