Tibetan in Digital Communication

Tibetan in Digital Communication is a research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (2012-2015), which built a part-of-speech tagged corpus of Tibetan texts spanning the language’s entire history. In addition to the corpus, the project has developed a number of digital tools that allows for the corpus to be employed in many areas of humanities research, and enable other researchers to more easily develop their own corpora or software tools.

The corpus is a powerful resource for scholars working with Tibetan language materials in a wide range of ‘disciplines—including’ history, religion, literature and linguistics—since it will offer ready access to, and comparison across, texts from different time periods, regions and genres.
