The Canonical Text Services in Classics and Beyond

Tiepmar, Jochen / Heyer, Gerhard


Starting with the project A Library of a Billion Words (ESF 100146395) and ongoing in the Big Data related project Scalable Data Solutions (BMBF 01IS14014B), the NLP group in Leipzig was tasked to develop a feature complete and generic implementation of the Canonical Text Services (CTS) protocol that is able to handle billions of words. This paper describes how this goal was achieved and why this is a significant step forward for the communities of humanists and computer scientists who work with text data.
