Chapter Summary

In spite of the important precedent, after an early phase computational and corpus research has been focusing on modern languages, especially English. Krauwer (1998) introduces the idea of a Basic Language Resource Kit (BLARK), which he defines as "the minimal set of language resources that is necessary to do any precompetitive research and education at all". The first step towards developing computational resources for Latin consists of collecting the textual material in a format that can be handled by Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools. Those texts were not originally produced digitally, which means that a conversion from paper to electronic format is necessary. Morphological features of words can be included either through a manual annotation or through automatic methods. The chapter presents a brief overview on existing computational resources and tools for Latin covered annotated corpora, various NLP tools, and lexical databases.
