BCDH is closely cooperating with the Institute for Serbian Language of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences on a nationally-funded project digitizing Serbian lexicographic heritage and has built an innovative dictionary platform (raskovnik.org) along with a set of tools and APIs for the scholarly exploration of lexical data.
BCDH is also a leader of the DARIAH Working Group on Lexical Resources and the driving force behind the development of TEI Lex 0, a subset of TEI aimed at simplifying the interoperability of TEI-encoded dictionaries.
Visiting researchers will benefit from having access to dictionary datasets such as
Miklošić’s Lexicon Palaeoslovenico-graeco-latinum,
Vuk Stefanović Karadžić’s Serbian Dictionary (1818, 1852),
Đuro Daničić’s Rječnik iz književnih starina srpskih,
a number of Serbian dialectological dictionaries, as well as a host of BCDH-developed tools such as TEI Completer or TEI Authorizer.
BCDH is looking forward to sharing its expertise in the theory and practice of converting printed dictionaries into electronic form, lexical data modeling and TEI with ELEXIS visiting researchers.
