Automatic creation of interlinear text for philological purposes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interlinear text presents a collection of interpretations of a manuscript. Whereas such a form is often compiled by a single author or a single team of scholars, we here consider automatic creation of interlinear text out of independently created linguistic resources. In terms of mathematical structures, we investigate the constraints one may want to impose on the rendering and pair-wise alignment of resources, and present a computer algorithm that solves those constraints, resulting in suitable interlinear text.
