Kamakura Period Series: Overview INTRODUCTION

We have made public the data for five collections of folktales and essays (as the Kamakura Period Series, Volume I of the Corpus of Historical Japanese), and for five collections of diaries and travel literature (as the Kamakura Period Series, Volume II). In addition to the "readings" (pronunciations), part-of-speech classifications, and other morphological information annotated in all of the texts, distinctions between prose, dialogue, and poetry are annotated. Furthermore, the language in the corpus is the original language of the classical texts, and modern translations are not provided.
