"Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance"

The database Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance provides annotated data (historical and present-day examples) on the adjective-adverb inferface in various Romance languagues as well as in Latin. The databases were compiled during several years in cooperation with several project partners.

In the context of the FWF-project Open Access Database 'Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance' (2018-2020), these annotated data were integrated into a new online corpus and technically adapted to the standards of the CLARIN ERIC (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure / European Research Infrastructure Consortium for Language Resources). The database is hosted by the GAMS repository and was build by the Austrian Center for Digital Humanities.

Corpus Description:

The database “Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance” (version 2020) is an annotated and partly lemmatised corpus of Romance adjectives used in adverbial functions (e.g. Fr. voler haut, aller droit, also as modifiers of other word classes than the verb, e.g. the adjective in Sp. es cosa harto seria) and as part of prepositional adverbials (Pt. de novo, Sp. a ciegas). It integrates several corpora of different Romance languages (French, Italian varieties, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish), which comprise a total of 31,800 annotated examples.

A search interface allows for queries in each separate corpus as well as in freely combined corpora. Adverbs are tagged according to a shared annotation model, using the same categories. Thus, the annotation model offers a cross-linguistic categorization for the multifunctional word-class “adverb” based on its forms, functions and meanings. In the future, the corpus may be enlarged with new datasets added using the same annotation model.
