The Lemma Sorted Concordance to the Malaga Corpus of Late Middle English Scientific Prose

» Index » Concordance

Concordance Manager is an online application which serves to visualize the concordances generated with TexSEn. The application employs PHP language with MySQL database access.

Main Features

The concordances are displayed in terms of lemma. The program applies a specific format/style to the data, when displayed on screen, so as to procure a clearer reading of the results. The main results are organized into five columns: a) Lemma; b) -1 (the first preceding word); c) keyword (the word entry); d) +1 (the first following word); and e) reference.


For the sake of successful reading and screen-visualization, concordances are generated with five words to the right and to the left of the lemma/keyword. If a larger context for the lemma is desired, it can be generated through TexSEn with the "Lemma-sorted KWIC concordance builder"; and if you wish to visualize the whole phrases, go to the list of lemmas and phrases.

When the selected lemma has many registers, they are generated on a number of different pages, each one displaying a total of 200 registers. Below the bottom left corner of the table, navigation buttons are included to move through the different pages.

The layout of the table displayed on screen is the following. The first cell of each row holds the lemma (in blue) and the cells to the right, the keyword's pre-context. Next, the keyword is offered in central position (in red) and to the right the keyword's post-context. Although the number of words in the pre- and post-context can be changed when generating the concordances, it is commonly kept the same for all the lemmas in a table. Finally, the text's reference is provided with the page (p italicized and in superscript) or folio (r or v italicized and in superscript) number and the line of the given paragraph.

By default, the results are always displayed according to the original ordering of the words in the text, not alphabetically. However, they can be alphabetically sorted in terms of keyword, previous word (-1), or following word (+1) by clicking on the icon () appearing on top of the aforementioned columns.

The lemma-sorted concordances are generated from the Hunter manuscripts which compose the Malaga corpus of the Late Middle English Scientific Prose. Actually, the lemma-sorted concordances replicate the KWIC concordances of the referred corpus though sorted in terms of their lemma for the sake of easing the consult. By clicking on a given lemma of the predictive list all the variants compiled under this lemma are displayed in a tabular format. This constitutes a great advantage as all the lemma-related allomorphs are listed at a stake without other words intervening in the list and thus avoiding the task of scrolling throughout the alphabetical list especially whenever initial alternative consonants are involved (<f> / <v> ; <c> / <k> / <ch> ; <th> / <thorn> / <yogh> , etc.) or initial monothongs or diphthongs are concerned, which may be (the) exponent of a dialectal feature.
The lemma-sorted concordances are shown treatise by treatise in this application, though the results of five of them have been grouped here for convenience. The treatises concordanced are Hunter 503 (Eye), Hunter 513 (Eye), Hunter 513 (Antidotary), Hunter 509 (System of Physic), and Hunter 497 (Macer's Herbary), and the lemmas selected for illustration are {air, n (1)}, {either, c}, {either, d}, {either, r}, (bēn, v), (bī, p), etc-

As for the lemma {air, n (1)} 27 occurrences have been found, their distribution being as follows: MS Hunter 503 (Eye) 6x, MS Hunter 513 (Eye) 5x, MS Hunter (Antidotary) 1x, MS Hunter 509 (System of Physic) 13x, MS Hunter 497 (Macer’s Herbary) x2. In turn, the allomorphs found are distributed as follows: <aer> x3, <ayre> x2, <eiӡyr> x1, <eir> x2, <eire> x5, <ere> x1, <eyr> x4, <eyre> x7, and <eẏre> x2. From the number of occurrences it is straighforward to deduce that not all of them can be related to their respective treatises as shown in the table below.

Although the allomorphs of just one lemma have been studied, the lemma-sorted approach lends itself helpful to accomplish most descriptive philological studies. In addition, the feasibility of sorting alphabetically the precontext (-1) and the postcontext (+1) of the KWIC is also a valuable device to discover a plausible explanation for the ending <e> in the allomorphs (as its deployment may sometimes depend on the ensuing context, be they a punctuation mark, a vowel-initiated word, or a consonant-initiated word).
Similarly, the distribution of the allomorphs of the lemmas {either, d}, {either, r} and {either, c} is also uneven, either when the featuring class is taken into consideration (determiner x1, pronoun x8, and conjunction x17) or when the treatise is invoked as can be seen in the tables below.

Leaving aside the likely dialectal characteristics that can point to the provenance of the text, the information deriving from the concordances can sometimes result into a valuable authorship fingerprint especially when dealing with function words: {either, d} only occurs in Hunter 513 (Eye) whereas {either, r} is exclusive of restrictive use in Hunter 509 (System of Physic) x7. In the case of {either} the concordance also allows us to observe that <of> is the only postcontext (7x) and precontext (1x). Hardly could these evidences have been found so easily without counting on the lemma-sorted concordances, as the allomorphs are not bound to be consecutive in an alphabetical list.
The lemma-sorted concordances are also helpful when some allomorphs of a given lemma <be>, <bi>, <bie>, <by>, etc., coincide with allomorphs of a different lemma in a plain KWIC concordance as in the case of {ben, v} and {bi, p} since the linguist doesn’t have to filter them in view of the context. A sample of this phenomenon is illustrated below.
