Polderland data generation

Polderland has now given instructions for how to handle genitive compounding and proper nound prefixing. We’ll need to decide how to specify nouns that should take genitive first parts when compounding.

  1. add smj to PLX conversion (Børre, Tomi)
    1. done
  2. send smj PLX data to Polderland (Børre, Tomi)
  3. decide how to specify nouns requiring genitive first parts (Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  4. Include numerals in the speller (Børre, Tomi)
    1. first version done, but needs more work
  5. add prefixes to the PLX (Børre, Tomi)
    1. still not
  6. add derivations to the PLX generation (Børre, Tomi)
    1. next after numbers are fixed

Corpus contracts

TODO:

Bug fixing

59 open Divvun/Disamb bugs, and 23 risten.no bugs

Moving G5

The G5 could now be moved out of Børre’s office, to the basement where the present web server is located. That will reduce the noise level in the office quite substantially:-)
