Euporia 2021


EUPORIA 2021- Webinar series in Theories and Practices of the Annotation through Domain-Specific Languages
Fall 2020 - Spring 2021

Amedeo Raschieri, EuporiaRhetorica and DiLAR
(Digital Lexicon of Ancient Rhetoric)

The Digital Lexicon of Ancient Rhetoric (DiLAR) Project aims to build a digital lexicon of Latin terms of rhetoric and, in its first phase of development, analyses and studies the Rhetorica ad Herennium and the rhetorical works of Cicero. The project intends to fill a gap not only in Digital Humanities but also in traditional lexicographical studies. The main feature of the project is to start from the direct annotation of the rhetorical works to complete the lexicographic entries; the final user can then choose the direction of consultation and move intertextually between texts and rhetorical index. Euporia enables those who annotate the text to focus on rhetorical issues, but at the same time to keep track of other content – as stylistic and linguistic information - that can then be retrieved and used later. Using Euporia is like having at your disposal the wide margins of a medieval manuscript where one can write cross-references, annotations and comments to create a paratext that not only allows moving more easily along the original text but also to offer new and more complete information to subsequent readers.
