The project “Digital Old Lithuanian: Corpus of Kristijonas Donelaitis (1714–1780)” (CorDon) has created a dynamic web presence which serves to:
1) make the complete Lithuanian-language works of Kristijonas Donelaitis freely available in a deeply annotated online corpus,
2) align them with the manuscript as well as historical editions and translations, serving as a digital edition for readers,
3) enable textological, philological and linguistic queries and analyses,
4) provide a user-friendly search interface and output visualisation suited to the requirements of historical corpora, the novel search GUI enabling users to generate complex queries using a cascade of drop-down menus.
