 iClassifier: Ongoing research projects 

Our current projects are about graphemic classifiers in ancient Egyptian, Sumerian, and ancient Chinese.
The iClassifier research tool is designed to collect data of graphemic classifiers in scripts,
as well as pronounced classifiers in various modern classifier languages.

 

Ancient Egyptian

Egyptian lemmata are courtesy of the "Strukturen und Transformationen des Wortschatzes der ägyptischen Sprache" project, Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften. The data release currently in use is accessible at: https://edoc.bbaw.de/frontdoor/index/index/docId/2919.

 

Cooperations 

Using the iClassifier research platform, we add classifier annotations to existing datasets created by various research projects.  

Strukturen und Transformationen des Wortschatzes der ägyptischen Sprache (Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften and Sächsische Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig.) [Prof. Tonio Sebastian Richter, Dr. Daniel Werning, and the Leipzig team led by Prof. Hans-Werner Fischer-Elfert, Dr. Peter Dils, and cooperation coordinator: Dr. Lutz Popko].  

 

We create classifier networks for digitized texts, kindly provided by the Strukturen und Transformationen des Wortschatzes der ägyptischen Sprache project. Currently, we add classifier annotations to Papyrus Ebers, and to selected literary texts of the

Middle Kingdom and the New Kingdom. (Ongoing)

Projet Ramses (Université de Liège.) [Prof. Jean Winand, Dr. Stéphane Polis]. A satellite classifier analysis of the Ramses Project data. The hieroglyphic spellings are imported from Ramses Online (http://ramses.ulg.ac.be) and enriched with classifier analysis. (Planned)

For Ancient Egyptian, our data model is compatible with the Thot Data Model (TDM, cf. Polis & Razanajao 2016).

Our metadata annotations are based on the 'Thesauri and ontology for documenting Ancient Egyptian Resources.'

 In the first step, the project is exclusively built on information contained in the ePSD2 database. We input the normalized lemmas according to the reconstructed form as found in ePSD2. For each lemma, we enter all script forms with classifiers (including phonetic indicators). We then comment on the analysis of each script form.
