Currently, we are working on the adaptation and integration of lexical resources representing different historical stages of Swedish into a lexical and morphological toolbox that will allow us to develop semantically oriented text search applications for historical research on Swedish text. We describe a semantic search prototype which was built using REST web services from this toolbox as components, and which has been evaluated by historians interested in using digitized 19th century novels as primary data for an historical investigation of the emerging consumer society in 19th century Sweden.}, booktitle = {NEALT Proceedings Series (NODALIDA 2011 Conference Proceedings)}, author = {Borin, Lars and Forsberg, Markus and Ahlberger, Christer}, year = {2011}, volume = {11}, pages = {58--65}, } @inProceedings{Rama-Taraka2011-140688, title = {Estimating Language Relationships from a Parallel Corpus. A Study of the Europarl Corpus}, abstract = {Since the 1950s, linguists have been using short lists (40–200 items) of basic vocabulary as the central component in a methodology which is claimed to make it possible to automatically calculate genetic relationships among languages. In the last few years these methods have experienced something of a revival, in that more languages are involved, different distance measures are systematically compared and evaluated, and methods from computational biology are used for calculating language family trees. In this paper, we explore how this methodology can be extended in another direction, by using larger word lists automatically extracted from a parallel corpus using word alignment software. We present preliminary results from using the Europarl parallel corpus in this way for estimating the distances between some languages in the Indo-European language family.}, booktitle = {NEALT Proceedings Series (NODALIDA 2011 Conference Proceedings)}, author = {Rama, Taraka and Borin, Lars}, year = {2011}, volume = {11}, pages = {161--167}, } @inProceedings{Saxena-Anju2011-140689, title = {Dialect Classification in the Himalayas: a Computational Approach}, abstract = {Linguistic fieldwork data – in the form of basic vocabulary lists – for nine closely related language varieties are compared using an automatic procedure with manual feedback, whose major advantage is its complete consistency.
