This article presents some applications of the open-source software tool DiaCollo for historical research. Developed in a cooperation between computational linguists and historians within the framework of CLARIN-D’s discipline-specific working groups, DiaCollo can be used to explore and visualize diachronic collocation phenomena in large text corpora. In this paper, we briefly discuss the constitution and aims of the CLARIN-D discipline-specific working groups, and then introduce and demonstrate DiaCollo in more detail from a user perspective, providing concrete examples from the bi-weekly German-language newspaper “Die Grenzboten” (1841- 1922) (“messengers from the borders”) and other historical text corpora. Our goal is to demonstrate the utility of the software tool for historical research, and to raise awareness regarding the need for well-curated data and solutions for specific scientific interests.

Keywords: digital humanities, digital history, digital source criticism, interdisciplinary collaboration, diachronic collocation analysis, corpus curation
