Towards the measurement of morphological variation in diachronic corpora

Speaker:
Alfonso Medina Urrea
Abstract:
Morphological profiles of a wide variety of languages can be gathered applying unsupervised methods for the morphological segmentation of graphical words. Comparison of different profiles of one given language from different diachronic states can be used for obtaining general measurements of variation at the morphological level. In this presentation, quantitative data for three centuries of the Spanish language spoken in Mexico will be presented (XVI, XVIII and XX centuries) with the intent of corroborating (or not) intuitions put forward by philologists.
