The computational and digital approach to the study of philology and linguistics represents, at the same time, an opportunity and a challenge. An opportunity, because the possibility to use computer-aided assessments of texts and languages has simplified the task of analysing and publishing extensive sets of data. A challenge, because the heuristic and epistemologic process needs to be adapted to the new tools, and in order to do that the researchers from the different scientific areas need to be able to effectively communicate with each other.
