4. Corpus gathering

Børre will focus on the gathering this week, we need more material…

TODO:

5. Corpus infrastructure

General

Our way of dealing with the conversion of input documents has now reached an advanced level. At some point we might consider publish our results, to the benefit of the rest of the research community.

TODO:

6. Infrastructure

Xerox tools wrapped as servers

Saara has made a prototype, available as server_anl.pl (the server) and client_anl.pl (for a client session). It still needs more development, but can be tested.

The server communicates purely over TCP/IP, which means that in principle any client can talk to it.

Very brief user instructions:

In one window: server_anl.pl. In another window: client_anl.pl -p. Type “quit” to exit the client and server.

TODO:

Hyphenator

First hyphenating transducer was made last week, but it produces wrong output because of overgeneration on the generator side.

gahpira => gah-pi-ra and ga-hpir, should be only the first one.

                         ´  hyphentated output
|     |
|   hyphenation rules
                        /     |
filter.fst & hyph.fst <-    generator <-------- overgeneration:
                        \     | ----------baseform/analysis
|   analyser
|     |
                         `  input

We need a “filter” fst: a-z... -:0 -:- ^:0 #:0

Sketch:

[%-, ^, %# ] (<-) 0 ;

and the rest by default: a = a:a.
