The Tesserae Project

Detecting Intertextuality of Meaning and Sound


The Tesserae Project offers a free online intertextual search tool for ancient Greek, Latin, and English. Tesserae has in the past allowed for a pairwise searching of literary texts in these languages for exact word or lemma similarities. This paper describes two new types of search now offered by Tesserae, by meaning (semantic search) and by sound.
