The model was trained on an extensive manuscript of early modern poetry, in separate hands (of which one is the most important) using different types of writing and special lay-outs (e.g. chronograms).

The author of the manuscript is a rhetorician (vernacular poet) from Mechelen, present-day Belgium, active in the first decades of the seventeenth century. The training was based on a word count of over 51,000 words (more than 200 folios of text) and the CER is 4,78%.
