The Birgitta-Notker-Korpus (BiNoKo) is a resource dedicated to comparative research on historical registers. The corpus comprises two sources: The Old High German Book of Psalms by Notker III of Saint Gall and the Old Swedish Revelations of Birgitta of Sweden. The subcorpus of Birgitta's Revelations and the subcorpus of Notker's Psalms are available as separate zip files. The corpus format is ANNIS. For local installation, use ANNIS Desktop. The documentation for ANNIS can be found here:

The guidelines (see 'related identifiers') are published in REALIS 2/3 and include information about the corpus design, annotation layers, meta data, and annotation principles.


BiNoKo 1.0 was created in the context of the CRC 1412 "Register", subproject B04 "Register emergence and register change in early Germanic" (funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, 416591334).
