Linguistic Databases

Almost any study in corpus linguistics boils down to construct, annotate, represent and analyze linguistic data. The requirements on a proper database are often contradicting:

  • It should be able to scale well with ever growing corpora such as the Wikipedia- while still being flexible for annotation and edition.
  • It should serve a broad spectrum of analyses by minimizing the need to transform data for a specific kind of analysis, while still being space efficient.
  • The data model should be able to mediate between standard formats while not becoming over-generic and difficult to handle.
  • ….

Designing and developing linguistic databases has become a major topic for me. Realizing that there is no such thing as the ultimate solution Iam interested in all kinds of database management systems and paradigms including relational-, graph-, distributed- and NoSQL databases as well as APIs for persistent storage.
