4. Corpus gathering

Sjur talked to Pia in Alta about the sma bible texts, and she will send us the texts she has. The inclusion in the corpus must be accepted by Bibelselskapet, which has already done so for smj and sme (with a bound license).

TODO:

5. Corpus infrastructure

Aligner

Problems with the aligner, Saara has talked to Børre, who will look into it. Saara has also got the uplug with hunalign aligner, a command line aligner. Earlier it did not support an anchor list, but the latest version does. It has arrived a bit late for the Disamb project, though.

TODO:

6. Infrastructure

Xerox tools wrapped as servers

Vislcg can’t be included in the server wrapping code, it does not support the needed interactive operation mode. Another solution needs to be found.

TODO:

7. Linguistics

Names and multilinguality

TODO:

  1. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  2. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: (Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  3. make terms-smX.xml <=== automatically from propernoun-sme-lex.xml (add nob as well) (the morphological section should be kept intact, in e.g. propernoun-sme-morph.txt) (Sjur, Saara)
  4. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files (Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  5. start to use the xml file as source file
  6. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  7. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  8. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  9. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  10. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils (linguists)
