7. 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)

8. Proofing tools

Hunspell

The %> marker does not survive into Hunspell to work as a boundary marker, despite being defined as %> for the Hunspell version.

Priority list:

  1. debug the missing > marker
  2. add smj to the soup, make sure it works roughly as good as sme
  3. fix the remaining conversion bugs for sme
  4. return to smj, and fix whatever is left to fix
  5. integrate the derivations as separate “continuation lexicons”

TODO:

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

TODO:

Automated testing

TODO:

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

Open issues based on test results:

sme

smj

TODO:

InDesign tools

The speller works in InDesign and InCopy. Lacks user defined lexicons, but Polderland is trying to fix this bug.

The new Sámi newspaper, Ávvir, is publishing its first edition on February 6th. We should release final InDesign tools, including final spellers, one week ahead of that, Wednesday Jan. 30th.

TODO:

Hyphenators

We need more test data, to test hyphenation of different types of words. Thomas should make a file gt/sme|smj/testing/hyphenation.txt of the format:

compoundword	com^pound#word

It should contain all possible word formation patterns and their correct hyphenation. That is, at least:

TODO:

Windows installer

TODO:

Releases

TODO:

9. Other

South Sámi project startup meeting

We extend the meeting on our part, to have this project’s first gathering.

TODO:

Corpus contracts + open source

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.

83 open Divvun/Disamb bugs (45 of these 83 are speller-related bugs, 38 are other bugs), and 23 risten.no bugs

10. Next meeting, closing

The next meeting is 28.1.2008, 09:30 Norwegian time.

The meeting was closed at 10:59.
