Corretor Ortográfico E Corpus Linguístico: Matar Dois Coelhos Com Uma Só Cajadada, Matthew S. Stuckwisch

Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures Publications and Other Works

O que faz falta para o estudo das línguas minoritarias é ainda muito. Uma das ferramentas mais importantes para o estudo de idiomas é o corpus. Embora seja bastante fácil hoje preparar um corpus básico, é bastante mais difícil criar um corpus etiquetado para a pesquisa de estruturas mais gerais, porque é preciso etiquetar as palavras nele introduzidas. Ao mesmo tempo, essas línguas também costumam estar num estado variável de normalização e estandarização, e elas e os seus falantes poderiam beneficiar de um corrector ortográfico. Proponho que, por ...


China’S Rural Statistics: The Contemporary Chinese Village Gazetteer Data Project, Yuanziyi Zhang 2020 University of Pittsburgh

China’S Rural Statistics: The Contemporary Chinese Village Gazetteer Data Project, Yuanziyi Zhang

Journal of East Asian Libraries

In July 2018, the East Asian Library (EAL) of the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) initiated the Contemporary Chinese Village Gazetteer Data (CCVG Data) project to create a series of open-access online datasets of China’s rural statistics selected from the library’s collection of Chinese village gazetteers. The current datasets contain data from 1,000 village gazetteers in 18 categories. As an ongoing project, the goal is to reach 2,500 to 3,000 villages. A database that allows effective and efficient ingesting, querying, manipulating, and displaying CCVG data will be available for use by the end of ...

Art Is Data Is Art, Nicole Orchosky

Student Projects from the Archives

The Digital Humanities field is rapidly introducing new and innovative ways in which we can analyze and explore large bodies of humanities material in order to make new discoveries and connections. This project serves as an introduction on how to use simple Digital Humanities tools to examine a dataset. In this project, data collected about the body of artwork exhibited in the 1913 Armory Show like medium, subject, or year of creation is analyzed using three different free-to-use tools. The data is then presented in a visual format that brings new questions and connections to light. The limitations and frustrations ...

Student Projects from the Archives

The Westinghouse Electric Corporation's plant in Sharon, Pennsylvania operated from the 1920s till the 1980s and saw a number of significant events during that period. This article uses a belt buckle that was given to one company employee as a 35-year service award, and it explores the historical significance of the object by focusing on the major events its owner was involved in during those 35 years. It looks closer into the life of one Westinghouse employee while also exploring significant events that influenced the company itself as well as the small town of Sharon, Pennsylvania.


Hot Dog Vs. Christian Fundamentalism In 1920s America, Nicole Orchosky 2020 University of Akron

Hot Dog Vs. Christian Fundamentalism In 1920s America, Nicole Orchosky

Student Projects from the Archives

Hot Dog: the Regular Fellow’s Monthly was a satirical magazine published by the Merit Publishing Company in Cleveland, Ohio throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Editor Jack Dinsmore included crudely humorous short stories and poems, images of scantily clad women, and editorials and opinion pieces offering his own commentary on current events. In the case of the December 1921 issue, Dinsmore offers scathing criticism of religious Prohibition supporters, namely Billy Sunday and Reverend John Roach Straton. This paper examines how an opinionated independent publication representative of its anti-Prohibition readership reacted to the Temperance Movement and subsequent outspoken Fundamentalist Christian figureheads.


Housing Instability In The Lafayette Community And Beyond, Aameneh Kermani 2020 Purdue University

Housing Instability In The Lafayette Community And Beyond, Aameneh Kermani

Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement

This paper addresses the issue of housing instability low-income families face and the ways the community can help. The issue is prevalent in the Lafayette community and beyond. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization working to raise awareness of housing instability in our community, specifically through the ReStore of Lafayette. The ReStore is run solely on the community’s donations and volunteer work. All proceeds from the store go to building affordable houses for low-income families. My objectives in the research I conducted were to gain a better understanding of how the ReStore goes about eliminating housing instability in ...


Labeculæ Vivæ: Building A Reference Library Of Stains For Medieval And Early Modern Manuscripts, Alberto Campagnolo, Erin Connelly, Heather Wacha 2020 Università degli Studi di Udine

Labeculæ Vivæ: Building A Reference Library Of Stains For Medieval And Early Modern Manuscripts, Alberto Campagnolo, Erin Connelly, Heather Wacha

Manuscript Studies

Stains on manuscripts are signs indicative of their past lives left by time and usage. Reading these signals in concert with conventional information gathered from manuscripts can add to our understanding of the history and use of an object. This project, supported by a microgrant from the Council on Library and Information Resources, and run as a preliminary pilot study, provides an identified, open-access database of a number of commonly found stains in order to help researchers answer questions such as manuscript provenance, transmission, material culture, as well as scientific applications for arts questions and the innovative uses of multispectral ...


Multispectral Recovery Of A Fragment Of Richard Fitzralph’S Summa De Questionibus Armenorum From University Of Rochester, D.460 1000-03, Kyle Ann Huskin, Alexander J. Zawacki, Gregory Heyworth 2020 University of Rochester

Multispectral Recovery Of A Fragment Of Richard Fitzralph’S Summa De Questionibus Armenorum From University Of Rochester, D.460 1000-03, Kyle Ann Huskin, Alexander J. Zawacki, Gregory Heyworth

Manuscript Studies

Multispectral imaging—the process of obtaining image data from a range of both visible and invisible wavelengths—is a new frontier in medieval studies, raising the possibility of recovering damaged or palimpsested texts that have been illegible for centuries. In this paper we show the remarkable results of applying this technology to University of X, MS D.460 1000-003, a previously unidentified single-folio fragment that was gifted to the university in 1968. Formerly used as a limp vellum binding for a seventeenth-century volume, the text has become so worn that it is all but completely unreadable to the naked eye ...


Visualizing Codicologically And Textually Complex Manuscripts, Anna Dorofeeva 2020 University College Dublin

Visualizing Codicologically And Textually Complex Manuscripts, Anna Dorofeeva

Manuscript Studies

This article presents the collation map, a new diagrammatic method for visually mapping the texts of complex medieval Western manuscripts against their material structures. It argues that the collation map is a more useful tool for understanding the collation of codicologically and textually complex manuscripts than collation formulae – currently the most frequently used method of representing collation. Four reasons for this are explored: one, the map provides a visual representation of the manuscript’s overall structure at a glance by showing the whole manuscript on a single page; two, it provides an instant overview of the size and spread of ...

لما كان الحديث النبوي الشريف هو مصدر التشريع الثاني عند المسلمين و هو الترجمة العملية للقرآن الكريم, كان لا بد من التحقق من صحة الأحاديث و ضعفها. و قد اعتمد المحدثون و خاصة أهل الجرح و التعديل منهم على التحقق من أحوال رواة اللأحاديث للحكم عليها, و أصلوا أصولا لذلك ذكرها ابن الصلاح في مقدمته (1), و من أهمها معرفة أحوال الرجال او الرواة. و معرفة الرجال منوطة بمعرفة أسمائهم, و بعد عملنا السابق المرتبط (2) باستخراج أسماء الرجال, لاحظنا وجود أسماء مهملة (مثل سفيان من دون تحديد), و كنى (مثل حدثني أبي), بما يضفي الغموض على الراوي , ولا يساعد ...
