    Research Projects


    This DFG-funded project provides a web-based open-access platform for linguistic research in ancient Indian texts. The text corpus is made available in morphologically and, where appropriate, metrically annotated form and can be searched according to lexicographic and corpus linguistic criteria. VedaWeb is part of the Cologne South Asian Languages and Texts platform (C-SALT, http://c-salt.uni-koeln.de/). The pilot text of the project is the Rigveda, which is linked to the dictionaries available on Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries via the C-SALT APIs for Sanskrit dictionaries (https://www.sanskrit-lexicon.uni-koeln.de/). The morphological annotation of the Rig Veda was performed at the University of Zurich (UZH) and made available to the project for further processing.
