The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Royal Inscriptions

The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Royal Inscriptions
The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Royal Inscriptions (= ETCSRI) project aims to create an annotated, grammatically and morphologically analyzed, transliterated, trilingual (Sumerian-English-Hungarian), parallel corpus of all Sumerian royal inscriptions.

ETCSRI is a fully lemmatized corpus; all words in it are tagged in order to generate glossaries. Its glossaries of Sumerian and various categories of proper names can therefore be used as convenient indices of the whole corpus of Sumerian royal inscriptions.

The designation of seal inscriptions now also includes CDLI's S-numbers. Seal inscriptions can therefore be searched according to their S-number in the pager. Writing, e.g., "CDLI Seals 005885" in the search bar will find "Amar-Suena 2029add". Searching for "CDLI Seals" will bring up all the CDLI seals within the ETCSRI corpus.

One may also search for the CDLI P and Q-numbers, excavation numbers, museum numbers, and accession numbers, as well as the collection name in the search bar of the pager. A search for "P232380" will bring up "Gudea 011"; a search for "Q001136" will bring up "URU-KA-gina 20add"; a search for "OIM A04105" will display "Gudea 016"; and "Yale Babylonian Collection" will show 116 records.

The CDLI publication history will now show in the Item View (under the heading "Bibliography") and is also searchable. The search "!cat FAOS" displays 457 returns; the search "!cat Edzard" displays 6 returns.

ETCSRI is developed at the Department of Assyriology and Hebrew Studies (Institute of Ancient Studies, Eötvös L. University, Budapest) by Gábor Zólyomi as part of The Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus with the continuous assistance and help of Steve Tinney.

Funding for ETCSRI was provided by the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) between 2008.10.01—2013.06.30 (project no. K75104).
