3. Documentation

TODO:

4. Corpus gathering

Sjur spoke to Davvi Girji, we will send them a list of the authors contacted and DG will send a list of all works DG has published - ever (not all of them available in digital form, though)!

TODO:

5. Corpus infrastructure

Nothing this week either.

6. Infrastructure

TODO:

7. Linguistics

North Sámi

Actio compounds: Maaren and Duomma disagrees about what is correct and not, needs to be resolved. We need some more clarifications about the system, which we will do in Drag.

TODO:

Lule Sámi

TODO:

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 spellers

Børre, Sjur, Tomi will have a session on this in Drag.

TODO:

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

Text in other languages should not be marked as spelling errors.

TODO:

Testing tools

Sjur is trying to get the ccat typos option integrated in the test targets in the Makefile. Hopefully done soon.

TODO:

Regression tests

Nothing new

TODO:

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

TODO:

Compounding restrictions

Compounding restrictions are now integrated in the PLX conversion, thanks to Tomi.

TODO:

  1. improve prefix conversion to PLX (Tomi)
    1. done
  2. improve middle noun conversion to PLX (Tomi)
    1. done
  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, which means we should be able to extract correct compounding stems using xfst methods only.
      1. done
    2. compounding tags - we need to obey them when making the transducers. Suggestion - see above.
      1. done
  4. make conversion test sample; add conversion testing to the make file (Tomi)
    1. to regression test / QA the PLX conversion.
      1. not done

TODO:

Bug fixing

When fixing bugs, record the version number containing the fix in the Bugzilla bug report, such that for each bug, we know exactly when it should have been fixed, in what file(s) and what version.

56 open Divvun/Disamb bugs (21 of these 56 are speller bugs, 35 are general bugs), and 23 risten.no bugs

TODO:

The meeting in Drag

The Sámi Parliament board has its meeting June 19-21. We should use Monday 18. as our travel day, and return on Friday 22. Fly to Bodø, and go by rental car from there. It is also possible to go by car all the way from Tromsø, and it is even faster. Those going to Bodø are (at least):
