Research output: Other Conference ContributionsPresentationPresentation


What can be done from the 4 million Chinese characters corpus data from over 13,000 correspondences housed in the “Sheng XuanHuai Archive@CUHK” (http://repository.lib.cuhk.edu.hk/en/collection/shengxuanhuai)?

This presentation will introduce the Archive and demonstrate how researchers can perform text analysis by using modern digital humanities tools that are freely available and visualize the result of the selected corpus data. It will be followed by an experience sharing session on capitalizing the corpus by digital methods for some interesting cases and applications to demonstrate the potential of this Archive for the research community as well as promote this Archive into the general public.
