Speaking at SBL 2017 on Linking Lexical Resources

I’m again speaking at the SBL Annual Meeting, this time in Boston. My topic is basically the “lemma lattice” work started by Ulrik Sandborg-Petersen and I back in 2006 but which I’ve never presented in this sort of setting before.

Here’s the official abstract:

Linking Lexical Resources for Biblical Greek

As more resources for Biblical Greek, both old and new, become openly available, the opportunities for integrating them become greater. At the level of the word, it might seem a trivial task to match based on lemma. But no two texts are lemmatised the same way and no two lexicons will make the same choices of headwords. Numerical solutions such as Strongs and Goodrick-Kohlenberger solve some problems but introduce new ones. After surveying the various issues and challenges, this talk will provide both a framework for moving forward and a report on practical ways that a variety of texts, lexicons, and other resources such as principal-part lists are being linked in the service of open, biblical digital humanities.

I’ll certainly post my slides after my talk but I’ll also try to record it on my iPhone like I did at BibleTech 2015.
