vicav: Vienna Corpus of Arabic Varieties


The Vienna Corpus of Arabic Varieties has been conducted as a co-operation between the Department of Oriental Studies of the University of Vienna and the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It is also part of CLARIN-AT’s project bundle aiming at more language resources for under-resourced linguistic varieties.

Apart from its linguistic goals, the project has been pursuing strong interests in various aspects of text technology. The output of the work of the contributors is published in form of different types of digital language resources. The ACDH’s research interests in this project have been related to issues of digital lexicography, visualisation of digital language resources in a multilingual environment und the application of standards and de-facto standards such as TEI, LMF and/or MAF in the creation of digital language resources.
