Digital Humanities Small Grant 2023-2024

- Posted in Taal by - Permalink

Recently, I was awarded the Digital Humanities Small Grant 2023-2024 by the Leiden University Centre for Digital Humanities. This grant enables me to appoint two student-assistants to participate in the project, as described in the excerpt from the grant proposal below.

In this interdisciplinary project, combining the disciplines of Dutch Linguistics and Digital Humanities, two student assistants will search, index and read available literature on Dutch verb spelling, and they will use and evaluate methodologies from the domain of Digital Humanities to explore a dataset of 6 million verb-spelling answers collected by the first supervisor through the non-profit website Gespeld.nl since 2013.

I’m grateful to Digital Humanities, look forward to working together with two students on the project and by doing so, I hope to enhance our knowledge of spelling difficulties in Dutch verb spelling using data-driven techniques and big-data statistics on data from Gespeld.
