See BlackLab in action

For a quick example of a BlackLab application, have a look at either of these:

  • Brieven als Buit (“Letters as Loot”), where you can search a collection of historical letters to and from sailors from the 17th to the 19th century
  • Corpus Gysseling, a small corpus of historic Dutch (1200-1300)

If you have a CLARIN account, you might also want to check out:

Here are a few searches you can try:

  • Lemma: “koe” Finds all forms of the word “koe” (cow)
    Other words to try: “wet” (law), “zien” (to see), “groot” (large)
  • POS: “NOU*” Find all nouns
    Other values to try: “VRB*” (verbs), “ADJ*” (adjectives)
  • Word form: “coe” Find a specific historic spelling of “koe”

Please note that this is just a small sample of the capabilities of BlackLab.
