Workshop in Tromsø, end of February

List of topics, authors and presenters (*):

10 topis in 45 mins = 4,5 mins on each topic.

Dry test presentation on Wednesday afternoon? Sjur is arriving at 11 at the airport, Trond has a meeting at 14. Perhaps after the meeting, to allow some time to write the final bits of the presentation first? At 16, 17 roughly.

TODO:

  1. fix i18n bug in risten.no/G5 (so they will work without the proper locale request) (Sjur)
    1. it works ok locally, set-up / config needs to be checked on the G5; probably easy to fix
      1. looked at it
  2. fix display in column 3 (Sjur)
    1. it works in Firefox and other Mozilla-based browsers; not in Safari and other Webkit-based browsers
      1. looked at it
  3. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  4. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  5. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: (Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  6. 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)
  7. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files (Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  8. 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)
  9. start to use the xml file as source file
  10. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  11. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  12. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  13. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  14. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils (linguists)

Proofing tools

Hunspell

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

TODO:

  1. debug the missing > marker - the problem is on the Java side (Børre, Tomi)
  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”
