3. Documentation

The open documentation issues fall into these three categories:

TODO:

4. Corpus gathering

TODO:

5. Corpus infrastructure

Alignment

Trond has worked a lot with improving the anchor list, it was fruitful to do it. The anchor list still should be improved, though. It might be useful to run the alignment again.

There is a bug in the web interface, leading to wrong alignment: one sentence off in some but not all cases. Trond has discussed this with Lars.

8. Name lexicon infrastructure

Decisions made in Tromsø can be found in [this meeting memo.|/admin/physical_meetings/tromso-2006-08-propnoun.html]

TODO:

  1. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  2. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  3. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: (Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  4. 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)
  5. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files (Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  6. implement data synchronisation between risten.no and the cvs repo, and possibly other servers (ie the G5 as an alternative server to the public risten.no - it might be faster and better suited than the official one; also local installations could be treated the same way)
  7. start to use the xml file as source file
  8. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  9. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  10. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  11. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  12. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils (linguists)

9. Spellers

OOo speller(s)

TODO after the MS Office Beta is delivered:

Testing

Selecting test texts

In principle, we need the same text types as the ones we already aim at in our corpus. In practice, we must use new, unseen texts. We would like to have a balanced input of texts, but right now:

Spelling Error Markup

Procedure for marking up:

  1. pick a file in: /home/steinarn/gt/sme/zcorp/prooftest/bound/sme/news/MinAigi/, e.g.: index2.php_id_647.html.xml
  2. rename it from .xml to .correct.xml: index2.php_id_647.html.correct.xml
  3. copy to your own computer
  4. open in SEE or XMLEditor
  5. add manual markup according to the established convention
  6. when done, copy the file back to victorio - see dir structure below

Directory structure and file locations for manually corrected files:

1  prooftest/.../orig/file.html      loading
1  prooftest/.../orig/file.html.xsl  converting
2  prooftest/.../bound/file.html.xml to this file, copying back to orig as 3a
3a prooftest/.../orig/file.html.correct.xml speling§spelling  working on this
   manually, using RCS to check in each generation of manual markup
3b prooftest/.../bound/file.html.xml <error corr="spelling">speling</error>

TODO:

Testing tools

TODO:

Regression tests

TODO:

Localisation

We need to translate the info added to our front page (and a separate page) regarding the beta release. Also the press release needs to be translated.

TODO:

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

Postverbal clitics

How to include compounding restriction comment tags in the transducers:

giv0ri:giv'ri ALBMI ; !+SgNomCmp +SgGenCmp +PlGenCmp
=> (using a perl script or similar)
+SgNomCmp+SgGenCmp+PlGenCmpgiv0ri:giv'ri ALBMI ; !

TODO:

  1. improve prefix conversion to PLX (Tomi)
  2. improve middle noun conversion to PLX (Tomi)
  3. improve noun + adjective PLX conversion: (Tomi)
    1. compounding stems - how do we generate them? Using the java client? +SgNomCmp+Cmpnd = sáme–, should give the correct compounding stem, shouldn’t it? We want to optionally go from: sáme- NLI to sáme NL: - NLI (->) NL
    2. compounding tags - we need to obey them when making the transducers. Suggestion - see above.
  4. add propernouns to xfst-based conversion
  5. make conversion test sample; add conversion testing to the make file (Tomi)
  6. improve number conversion (Børre, Tomi)
  7. run xfst-based PLX conversion on victorio, make the result available on our public server (Saara, Sjur)

Public Beta release

Due to the problems with generating the PLX files discussed above, we need to move the release date further. Mid-April, before the “physical” meeting.

DONE:

TODO:

Version identification of speller lexicons

TODO:

10. Other

Project meeting IRL

The planned gathering will have to be on 16.-20.4., in Kárásjohki or Guovdageaidnu. All of Divvun should participate, and some from the UiTø project as well.

Corpus contracts

TODO:

Bug fixing

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