Title

VK: Verrijkt Koninkrijk (Enriched Kingdom)

Description

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)).
