Digital Classics in der Praxis: Arbeiten mit eAQUA: Eine Einführung mit Beispielen
"Digital Classics in der Praxis: Arbeiten mit eAQUA. Eine Einführung mit Beispielen“ introduces into the practical work of text mining with co-occurrence search and parallel search. The book is designed as a low-threshold introduction that does not require any previous knowledge. It can therefore easily be used as a textbook for text analysis in historical-philological coursers. In a general introductory section, the tools are explained on the basis of their functionalities offered in the portal eAQUA. The co-occurrence search shows semantic connections, the search for parallel passages lists similarities between a work and an entire reference corpus of Latin or Greek literature. Dependencies, influences, tradition and transfer paths of ancient knowledge can be reconstructed with the tools. This opens up new paths for the interpretation of ancient literature.
In the second part, terms from corpus analysis and the meaning and use of significance measures are explained. A detailed glossary explains the most common terms from the Digital Humanities today.
