Tariq Yousef, Chiara Palladino, Gregory Crane, Intra-language Text Alignment Using iAligner

The paper will introduce the subject of intra-language text alignment, report on the chosen algorithm and its modifications to perform optimal alignment, then focus on a variety of use cases from the field of historical languages, with particular regard to Ancient Greek and Latin.
