Digital Grammar of Greek Documentary Papyri

Finding the historical changes of Greek language through digital grammar

The aim of the PapyGreek project is to transform the existing digital corpus of Greek documentary papyri so that it yields to computational linguistic methods. This transformation project serves Greek and general historical linguistics, for whom the papyrological material has so far been very difficult to utilize. After the transformation process we can study the linguistic variations in the papyrological material, which again leads to more precise knowledge on the developments of the Greek language. PapyGreek is lead by Associate Professor of Classical Philology Marja Vierros.

The PapyGreek online portal, one of the main products of the project, can be found at The latest release of the syntactically annotated dataset, PapyGreek Treebanks, is here:
