  • Corpus Artesia - Archivio Testuale del Siciliano Antico: The Artesia Corpus is part of a larger research project, 'Artesia - Archivio testuale del Siciliano Antico' (Text Archive of Ancient Sicilian), a production of the Department of Modern Philology of the University of Catania, in close cooperation with the Centro di Studi Filologici e Linguistici Siciliani, Palermo (http://www.csfls.it). Among the other contributing national research projects, the Opera del Vocabolario Italiano (OVI) provided the software for creating and managing the full-text database. Our aim is to supply a well-structured research tool for the study of Medieval Sicilian (14th-16th centuries) from a Romance perspective and to account for its whole textual production. In particular, Artesia: • makes accessible and searchable a philologically reliable and periodically up-to-date corpus of literary and non-literary Sicilian texts, from the earliest attestations (14th cent.) to the latest (mid-16th cent.); • provides a brief, yet scholarly presentation for each author and text; • documents the individual works by putting them into a historical and critical context, highlighting relationships with and comparing it to different Latin and Romance textual traditions (Catalan, Tuscan, etc.); • brings a fundamental contribution to realize a Medieval Sicilian Dictionary; • publishes philological studies and linguistic researches concerning Medieval Sicilian, both in electronic and paper format (see Quaderni di Artesia, Catania: Ed.it, http://www.editpress.it). The Database: The full-text database is available online on the OVI website (http://artesia.ovi.cnr.it) and is searchable using GATTOWEB - Gestione degli Archivi Testuali del Tesoro delle Origini, created for the Tesoro della lingua italiana delle Origini (TLIO) (http://www.ovi.cnr.it). It allows advanced word searches, concordance generations and text lemmatization. Moreover, the Artesia Corpus is periodically published in a CD-Rom format (http://www.editpress.it/0808.htm). The Corpus: The corpus is made up of both literary and non-literary (e.g. documentary) texts dating from the beginning of 14th century, when the earliest Sicilian texts appeared, to the mid-16th century, when Tuscan replaced Sicilian as the language of the administration. Among the texts belonging to the corpus are: • published texts (especially the Collezione di testi siciliani dei secoli XIV e XV, published by Centro di Studi Filologici e Linguistici Siciliani, Palermo); • edited texts (for example PhD dissertations and other editions by the University of Catania); • previously unpublished and unedited texts, now for the first time made digitally accessible for especially Artesia. As of March 2010, the corpus contains 73 literary texts and 171 documents (1 081 539 tokens). These have been widely revisited and amended where doubtful readings occurred; these amendations have been systematically signaled by means of GATTO notes. The Database is progressively expanding to include the complete set of Medieval Sicilian texts, thus constituting a firm platform for the creation of a Medieval Sicilian Dictionary. (10-Mar-2010)
