• Grammatical annotation of historical Portuguese: Generating a corpus-based diachronic dictionary

      Bick, Eckhard; Zampieri, Marcos (Springer, 2016-09-03)
      In this paper, we present an automatic system for the morphosyntactic annotation and lexicographical evaluation of historical Portuguese corpora. Using rule-based orthographical normalization, we were able to apply a standard parser (PALAVRAS) to historical data (Colonia corpus) and to achieve accurate annotation for both POS and syntax. By aligning original and standardized word forms, our method allows to create tailor-made standardization dictionaries for historical Portuguese with optional period or author frequencies.
