The project "Reference Corpus Middle High German (1050-1350)", abbreviated as ReM, will provide a reference corpus for the Middle High German period being part of a corpus of historical German texts (formerly German Diachronic Digitally). The aim of the project "ReM" is to create a database which is sufficient, reliable and accurate with regard to the written records of Middle High German (1050-1350). Historio-linguistic and mediavalist research will be immensely facilitated as all data is made accessible electronically. In cooperation with the project "Old German Reference Corpus (750-1050)" an annotation standard "DDDTS" was developed based on STTS (Stuttgart-Tübingen Tagset), but adapted and extended for the special needs of the older periods of the German language.
The structure and the provision of the corpus are:
Comprehensive information about the project can be found on the new homepage of the "ReM" corpus at https://www.linguistics.rub.de/rem/.
After the successful completion of the second project phase, the reference corpus Mittelhochdeutsch (RefM) is now available online to all users. The corpus search is available at www.linguistics.rub.de/rem/access/index.html.
