I'm afraid I don't have any good ideas at this stage. Arguably the
largest and most significant development would be to extract and
recording more information of interest to philologists: lemmatising the
corpus, tying the texts in with Lena Petterson's runordsregister /
runnamnslexikon / Lexikon �ver urnordiska personnamn, etc. However, I
gather from Marco that he may have somebody already lined up to do some
of this quite comprehensively.
