Setting bounds in a homogeneous corpus: a methodological study applied to medieval literature

Abstract : The authors present here an exploratory and unspecific method that does not necessitate any a priori on the data - or any heavy transformation such as lemmatisation- that would have to be understood as a first step in the apprehension of a corpus. After a first phase of calibration, based on a control sample, the authors will introduce a method which heuristic value is to bring out, at different levels, internal divisions of different kinds (diachronic, diatopic, related to authorship or scribes,. . . ), that can then be analysed specifically. The authors illustrate this method by applying it to a corpus of Occitan medieval texts, the vidas. The corpus's authors and origins are in good part unknown.
