Abstract

Both historical linguistics and Digital Humanities have made great progress in recent decades. However, technology and research have still remained separate worlds, and as a result the digital infrastructures and corpora are not optimally equipped for diachronic linguistic research and take too little account of the theoretical insights. In this article I show on the basis of a concrete research question what requirements the data, metadata and infrastructure should meet in order to make the best use of the theoretical insights, and how far advanced we are at this moment. I demonstrate which research possibilities the available infrastructures offer and what more is needed, and I conclude with a description of the ideal infrastructure for a historical linguist and how to achieve this.
