Logo of Shebanq

This project is centered around the richly annotated linguistic database of the Hebrew Bible created by the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer. In the SHEBANQ project a webinterface was developed that enables running and saving queries and add them as annotations to the text. The richly annotated database can now be accessed by anyone who wants to consult the Hebrew text with its linguistic annotations, to see queries that researches have run and that have also been added as annotations, or run queries by him/herself, save the results or create a diagram of the statistics.
