FYI: Portal for the Languages of Scotland


Author: Jean Anderson

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Subject Language(s): English
Scots

FYI Body: THE STELLA PROJECT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW IS PLANNING THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A DATA GRID PORTAL TO FACILITATE RESEARCH IN THE LANGUAGES OF SCOTLAND.
THE PROJECT WILL PROVIDE A COMMON, SINGLE SCREEN, SEARCH INTERFACE TO
SEVERAL DATA SETS REQUIRED BY SCHOLARS OF THE LANGUAGES OF SCOTLAND: NAMELY
THE SCOTTISH CORPUS OF TEXTS AND SPEECH, THE DICTIONARY OF THE SCOTS
LANGUAGE, THE DICTIONARY OF THE OLDER SCOTTISH TONGUE, THE SCOTTISH
NATIONAL DICTIONARY AND THE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY.

I WOULD WELCOME COMMENTS FROM LINGUISTS. WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN USING
SUCH A PORTAL? WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE INVOLVED?

THANKS,
JEAN ANDERSON
