Abstract

One of the fundamental characteristics of language is that it changes over time. One can monitor the change by observing structured language documentations: Corpora. Recent development in technology, especially in the field of Natural Language Processing allows robust linguistic processing, which support the description of diverse historical changes in a corpus. The interference of human linguist is inevitable as it determines the gold standard, but computer assistance provides considerable support by incorporating computational approach in exploring historical corpus. This paper proposes a model for corpus development, where corpus are annotated to support further operations such as lexicogrammatical pattern matching, automatic retrieval and extraction. The corpus processing operations are performed by local grammar based corpus processing software. This paper concludes that data collection and data processing in a corpus are equally important to monitor language change, and none can be set aside.
