Collaboration Tools


A beta version of Bridge/Tools is available, which allows you to create a lemmatization spreadsheet for a Latin or Greek text.  You can chose to lemmatize only those words whose forms match a single dictionary lemma, leaving the rest for you to complete by hand (unambiguous lemmatization) — or allow the lemmatizer to guess the lemmata for all words (ambiguous lemmatization). You can select the format of the lemmata (morpheus or Bridge) and the format of the file to download (csv or Excel). The lemmatization process will soon also produce a set of readability statistics for your text (word count, average word length, average sentence length, percent lemmatized). With BridgeTools you can also format a lemmatization spreadsheet for input into The Bridge.


A quick guide to lemmatization (from a lemmatization sheet to completed data).

Creating Efficient and Accurate Vocabulary Lists

An in-depth, step-by-step guid to vocabulary list creation, from lemmatization to print or digital publication.

Open-Source Commentary Platform

CommentarySandbox is an open-source WordPress plugin that allows you to create DCC-style commentaries with the ease of WordPress.


BridgeOracle will allow you to discover readable texts in The Bridge Corpus by revealing the authors, texts, and passages that have the highest percentage of familiar vocabulary. Select the textbooks you’ve used, lists you’ve mastered, and texts
that you’ve read. Then let BridgeOracle reveal your next text(s).

Currently in development. Anticipated launch 2020.


Bridge/Scribe will markup a text to reveal familiar and/or new vocabulary.

For example, if you used the Bridge to create a list of new vocabulary in the first sentence of Caesar’s Bellum Gallicumexcluding the words in the DCC Latin Core, you would see:
Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur.

Currently in development; anticipated launch 2021.
