Information Access to Historical Documents from the Early New High German Period

pdf-format:


Abstract

With the new interest in historical documents insight grew that electronic
access to these texts causes many specific problems. In the first part of the
paper we survey the present role of digital historical documents. After
collecting central facts and observations on historical language change we
comment on the difficulties that result for retrieval and data mining on
historical texts. In the second part of the paper we report on our own work in
the area with a focus on special matching strategies that help to relate modern
language keywords with old variants. The basis of our studies is a collection of
documents from the Early New High German period. These texts come with a very
rich spectrum on word variants and spelling variations.
