The session consists of three main parts, illustrating two ways of annotating inscriptions from a linguistic point of view – i.e. manually and automatically – and how a linguistically annotated corpus can be explored.

  1. The Euboean inscriptions of Sicily treebank;
  2. The WoPoss modality annotation model applied to inscriptions;
  3. How to explore a linguistically annotated corpus.
