Base de français médiéval : une base de référence de sources médiévales ouverte et libre au service de la communauté scientifique

Abstract : Current developments in diachronic linguistics have an important impact on the production of digital resources that become more and more adapted to research on the medieval language and accessible to a large academic community. The enrichment of these resources has in turn a very strong influence on the objects and the methodologies used to analyse the data obtained in this process. It is this complex synergy and the methodological implications that underlie it that we will attempt to illustrate in this article through the example of the development of the Base de Français Médiéval Old French Corpus. We will first give an overview of the possibilities offered by this online corpus and then present the double-fold data analysis workflow: a “philological chain” for the constitution and the preparation of the textual data, and the “analytical chain” for their exploitation powered by linguistic tools. We will show how these two chains interact and the principles that form the basis of their association for integrated and community development: international standards for data representation and for tools architecture, open source licenses that allow the distribution, enrichment and long-term preservation of textual and software resources and that ensure reproducibility of the results of analysis.
