Pilot Study

The focus of the project “Compilation of a Corpus of 19th-Century English Grammars” was the compilation of a corpus of 19th-century British grammars and the XML annotation and online publication of the corpus texts in order to make the grammars accessible to the linguistic community. Completed corpus texts, self-authored tools for corpus and network analysis, and the documentation of the project is made available on this website.

First results have been presented at the International Conference on English Historical Linguistics (ICEHL 19) and at the Grammar and Corpora Conference 2016 (GaC 2016).

This project has been funded by Field of Focus 3 within the Excellence Initiative until December 2015.
