Language and Chronology

Text Dating by Machine Learning


Edited by Gregory Toner and Xiwu Han

In Language and Chronology, Toner and Han apply innovative Machine Learning techniques to the problem of the dating of literary texts. Many ancient and medieval literatures lack reliable chronologies which could aid scholars in locating texts in their historical context. The new machine-learning method presented here uses chronological information gleaned from annalistic records to date a wide range of texts. The method is also applied to multi-layered texts to aid the identification of different chronological strata within single copies.
While the algorithm is here applied to medieval Irish material of the period c.700-c.1700, it can be extended to written texts in any language or alphabet. The authors’ approach presents a step change in Digital Humanities, moving us beyond simple querying of electronic texts towards the production of a sophisticated tool for literary and historical studies.

The point at issue is how hazardous are the predictions upon which many people nevertheless have to base

Vraye Prediction is decorated with a frame formed by four woodcut strips (illus. i). On the last page of both editions (but in French in the Prediction) we find an appro- bation by the parish priest of Vianen, Willem van Varick, followed by a priv- ilege of Hendrik van Brederode dated 21 November 1565

newer media have presented themselves in the course of the past century, notably radio, fi lm, television. However, in spite of the gloomiest predictions, the mass media have failed to cause the book’s demise. Nor have they even begun to rival the status of the book as the single most e ff ective vehicle

astrological predictions. Considering the fact that these predictions were taken rather seriously, it is not likely that this periodical functioned in learned circles. 40 Other publications as well confirm the notion that Van Egmont was aiming at the broad market for popular material. He also produced

Bouman's opinions can be seen as (for his time) a very modern, scientific and empirical attitude. Saeghman by contrast expresses a traditional

estimates were made of the number of people who would see it. Somebody suggested that numbers would probably reach half those who saw the preceding Beatrix Potter exhibition (over ioooo visitors of all ages), and this prediction was proved correct. For a large number of visitors it was also their first
