Aeneid and Gallic War Vocabulary Data
The attached spreadsheet contains six sets of data relevant to the vocabulary of Vergil's Aeneid and Caesar's Gallic War. The data derives from human inspection and parsing of the Aeneid and Gallic War carried out by LASLA. The data were analyzed and collated with the DCC Core Latin Vocabulary by Derek Frymark, Seth Levin, and Connor Ford. Definitions were added by Derek Frymark and Seth Levin. The assocatied visualizations were produced by Seth Levin and Connor Ford using Tableau and Excel.
