ANEE lexical portals of Akkadian

Team 1 of the Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires (ANEE) has created lexical portals that function as a graphic semantic dictionary. Via these portals the user can explore semantic networks for one (or multiple) words that one is interested in. By following the links, one can also trace attestations back to the dataset in Korp and from there to Oracc.  We have used the methods of language technology to trace paradigmatic and syntagmatic relationships in a large corpus of the Akkadian language. Language technological tool fastText can be used to explore paradigmatic relations. The method called Pointwise Mutual Information (PMI) is able to capture the nuances of syntagmatic relations. The visualization of lexemes and their relationships as networks have proved to be the most fruitful approach to analyzing semantic domains created by our methods.
