Talmudic database version 009 “Tahariel” is online!

Let me present version 009 of the Talmudic database codenamed Tahariel. It commemorates the angel known from the Zohar in which it is presented as purifying heavenly fire. Apart from the regular cleaning up of the contents (Tahariel – cleaning up – you get the joke, right?), the most essential changes introduced to this version are as follows.
  • I reconsidered the #attitude category. The #mix tag is now reserved for the accounts in which a SE manifests both positive and negative attitudes. The units featuring more than one entity manifesting different attitudes are annotated with the respective tags. The drawback of this solution is that it requires manual control during the calculations, but the advantage is that the resulting annotations are more precise. 
  • I introduced an analogical solution regarding the grammatical number of the word denoting a given SE in a unit. There are units featuring both singular and plural entities, which had been initially annotated with the #plu tag – now, the description is more precise since it distinguishes between the cases featuring entities appearing in different grammatical numbers and those that feature several entities, all of which appear in plural or singular. Similarly as was the case with the attitude this puts additional demands on the counting process, but the units requiring manual processing are few and far between.
  • Since they were hardly ever used I forfeited the #early and #zugot tags annotating the groups of attributions. Version 009 uses the #2temple tag instead.

So head over to the database section and enjoy!


This version of the database was construed as a part of the project The Supernatural Entities and Their Relationships with Humans according to the Babylonian Talmud from the Quantitative and Qualitative Perspectives financed by the National Science Centre, Poland (SONATA 14; Registration number: 2018/31/D/HS1/00513).
