The Morpho-Syntactic Database of Mikael Agricola’s Works

The Morpho-Syntactic Database of Mikael Agricola’s Works contains the Finnish parts of Mikael Agricola’s works (Abckiria, Rukouskiria, Se Wsi testamenti, Käsikiria, Messu, Piina, Psaltari, Veisut, Profeetat). The database was created from 2004 to 2008, when the texts offered by the Institute for the Languages of Finland were coded and annotated by the Finnish Language Department of the University of Turku in the project ’The Scientific Edition and the Morpho-Syntactic Database of Mikael Agricola’s Works’ by broadening the model used in the Finnish Dialect Syntax Archive. The project was funded by the Academy of Finland and the Alfred Kordelin Foundation. The words of the corpus have been annotated by keyword, part of speech, morphological components and syntactical function. All the grammatical units have been coded according to their places in the works and in the books of the Bible.
