Standardizing linguistic data: method and tools for annotating (pre-orthographic) French

Simon Gabay, Thibault Clérice, Jean-Baptiste Camps, Jean-Baptiste Tanguy, Matthias Gille-Levenson

With the development of big corpora of various periods, it becomes crucial to standardise linguistic annotation (e.g. lemmas, POS tags, morphological annotation) to increase the interoperability of the data produced, despite diachronic variations. In the present paper, we describe both methodologically (by proposing annotation principles) and technically (by creating the required training data and the relevant models) the production of a linguistic tagger for (early) modern French (16-18th c.), taking as much as possible into account already existing standards for contemporary and, especially, medieval French.
