Description: 
The present communication relates to the activities I am carrying out as part of the "Translation Project of the Babylonian Talmud" and the PRIN 2017 project "Religious Diversity". After a brief introduction relating to the activities carried out by the research group involved in these two projects, the areas in which I am collaborating will be summarized, namely: i) definition of a model for the representation of knowledge conveyed by texts in relation to information of various kinds; ii) implementation of lexical functions in the context of terminological modeling; iii) analysis and study of the PAROLE-SIMPLE-CLIPS (PSC) resource, a computational lexicon for Italian, aimed at updating and using it; iv) elaboration of a methodology for the study of the lexicon of the religious diversity from a computational point of view. The first point will focus on the definition of a model based on the concept of "diasystem" and on its operational use in the computational context; the second and third points will focus on resources and, in particular, on the use of lexical functions in a termino-ontological resource and on the recovery of a complex and stratified resource such as PSC in the context of tasks such as the full-text search. The fourth and last point consists in a synthesis between the use of the model and the use of lexicographic resources, through a methodology of comparative study starting from the text as a datum and a source of information to be extracted.

Flavia Sciolette
Flavia ScioletteShe has been a postdoctoral research fellow since 2020 at the Institute for Computational Linguistics "A. Zampolli" of the National Research Council of Italy in the context of the "Translation Project of the Babylonian Talmud" and is collaborating with the PRIN 2017 project "Religious Diversity". She conducted her university studies at the University La Sapienza of Rome and received a PhD at the University of Macerata. Her publications focus on models for the computational representation of text, lexicon and formular language in medieval scientific texts and the conception of the marvelous in the Romance context. Furthermore, she is an adjunct professor of Digital Humanities at the University La Sapienza of Rome.
