  • Querying Greek Texts in XML: Part 4

    This is the last in a series on querying Greek texts with XQuery. Before you read this, you should consider reading the earlier posts:

  • Querying Greek Texts in XML: Part 3

    This is the third in a series on querying Greek texts with XQuery. Before you read this, you should consider reading the earlier posts:

  • Querying Greek Texts in XML: Part 2

    This is the second in a series on querying Greek texts with XQuery. Before you read this, you should consider reading Querying Greek Texts in XML: Part 1, which introduces simple queries on base texts. In this post, we introduce morphologies and syntax trees. In the next post, we will show some of the queries that can be done using treebank markup.

  • Querying Greek Texts in XML: Part 1

    This is the first in a series on querying Greek texts with XQuery. We will also look at the differences among various representations of the same text, starting with the base text, morphology, and three different treebank formats. As we will see, the representation of a text indicates what the producer of the text was most interested in, and it determines the structure and power of queries done on that particular representation. The principles discussed here also apply to other languages.
