Electronic Texts in the Humanities
Principles and Practice

This book introduces a range of tools and techniques for manipulating
and analysing electronic texts in the humanities. It shows how
electronic texts can be used for the literary analysis, linguistic
analysis, authorship attribution, and the preparation and publication
of electronic scholarly editions. It also assesses the ways in which
research in corpus and computational linguistics can feed into better
electronic tools for humanities research.
