VK: Verrijkt Koninkrijk (Enriched Kingdom)

Summary

The enriched publication of the important Dutch historiographical work Het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden in de Tweede Wereldoorlog (The Kingdom of the Netherlands in WWII) by Dr. Loe de Jong.

Background

Dr Loe de Jong’s Het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden in de Tweede Wereldoorlog remains the most appealing history of German occupied Dutch society (1940-1945). Published between 1969 and 1991, the 14 volumes, consisting of 30 parts and 18,000 pages combine the qualities of an authoritative work for a general audience, and an inevitable point of reference for scholars.
In VK this corpus is enriched with:

  • Tokenization, sentence splitting, part-of-speech tagging and lemmatization (done with the FROG software from Tilburg University).
  • Named entity recognition (done using UvA's NE tagger (specially trained for Dutch within the Stevin DuoMan project)).
  • Polarity tagging (positive/negative connotation of words) (done using UvA's FietsTas software (developed for Dutch within the Stevin DuoMan project)).
  • Named entity reconciliation by linking to Wikipedia (done using software developed by Edgar Meij (UvA)).
