Digital humanities needs tools that better support the core processes of humanistic inquiry. This includes support for handling uncertainty and incompleteness in the data, for interactive exploration, and for fluidly moving between close and distant reading. The Khepri tool presented here is part of a user-centered project to develop a modular set of components that take these requirements into account, and can be connected and configured to respond to the needs of a particular humanities task and data. Here, the configuration presented is one for the field of historical sociolinguistics, developed in collaboration between computer scientists and sociolinguistic researchers.
