Linguistic DNA is a collaborative research project funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and involving researchers at the Universities of Sheffield, Glasgow, and Sussex. Linguistic DNA seeks to understand the evolution of early modern thought by modelling the semantic and conceptual changes which occurred in English printed discourse between c.1500 and c.1800.
