Digital Linguistics is a growing interdisciplinary field at the crossroads of traditional linguistics, information technology and social sciences. Rather than focusing on the use of computers for performing language-related tasks (such as machine translation or voice recognition, sub-domains of Computational Linguistics), Digital Linguistics analyses, preserves and disseminates language data, i.e. digital artefacts that use language as a means of human expression. News articles, social media content, or digitized medieval manuscripts are all potential objects of interest for Digital Linguists. Closely related to Digital Humanities, Digital Linguistics is attracting increasing attention from the academic community as well as the public and private sectors, since skills in handling digital language data are considered essential in the modern economy and society.The Digital Linguistics book series features academic publications by renowned experts on the many aspects of this new field, from research infrastructures to digital preservation methods to legal issues in language data access and re-use. It is a valuable companion for anyone interested in language and technology.
CLARIN, the "Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure", has established itself as a major player in the field of research infrastructures for the humanities. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the organization, its members, its goals and its functioning, as well as of the tools and resources hosted by the infrastructure. The many contributors representing various fields, from computer science to law to psychology, analyse a wide range of topics, such as the technology behind the CLARIN infrastructure, the use of CLARIN resources in diverse research projects, the achievements of selected national CLARIN consortia, and the challenges that CLARIN has faced and will face in the future.
The book will be published in 2022, 10 years after the establishment of CLARIN as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium by the European Commission (Decision 2012/136/EU).
