Annotated Corpus of Luwian Texts

Annotated Corpus of Luwian Texts
This is a pilot version of the Annotated Corpus of Luwian Texts (ACLT). So far it comprises the analysis the texts included in the published volumes of the Corpus of Hieroglyphic Luwian Inscriptions (CHLI) by J. David Hawkins. This initial phase of this project has been completed with the assistance of a research grant of the Corpus Linguistics Program sponsored by the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Dr. Ilya Yakubovich acted as the principal investigator of the project, whose team consisted of Dr. Timofey Arkhangelskiy, Mr. Sergey Boroday, and Dr. Alexei Kassian. The extension of the corpus to other Luwian texts is planned for the near future, with the eventual goal of preparing a corpus-based Luwian dictionary. The lexicographic work on the Luwian texts is further facilitated by a Humboldt Fellowship tenured by Ilya Yakubovich at the Philipps Universität Marburg in 2013–15. Special thanks go to Martien Dillo for his corrections and suggestions.

A special feature of the Luwian corpus, which sets it apart from the electronic corpora of better-known languages, is the absence of an up-to-date Luwian dictionary in hieroglyphic transmission. The compilation of the corpus could hardly be separated from deciphering the Anatolian Hieroglyphs and interpreting the Luwian lexicon. This is why the interface of the corpus contains the provisional Luwian glossary, whose lemmata can be used as entries for automated search. Ilya Yakubovich takes the entire responsibility for the interpretative transliteration conventions adopted in the glossary. The narrow transliteration used in the corpus generally follows the system of the CHLI but incorporates several modifications reflecting the recent progress in the Luwian Studies.

The present corpus is not meant to represent a final product. The corrections of both linguistic and technical errors will be warmly welcomed. For linguistic issues, please contact Ilya Yakubovich ( For possible problems with computer interface, please contact Timofey Arkhangelskiy ( If you wish to cite the new interpretations offered in the corpus, you can give credit to the ACLT (together with its URL).
