Thematic Content Coding in Bulgarian Dialectology
The Bulgarian Dialectology as a Living Tradition project analyzes field interview recordings from Bulgarian villages by cataloging and comparing the dialectal data on an interactive online database. I will be involved this summer in refining the thematic coding tags used to classify the speech data based on ethnographic content. Through updating the existing tags on transcripts and expanding the overall hierarchy of thematic categories, my work will focus on making the anthropological material on the site more accessible and accurate for users. This research aims to expand the field of digital humanities, bringing together knowledge of Bulgarian traditional culture and linguistic systems to be shared with the general public.
