3. Documentation

4. Corpus gathering

TODO:

  • add sma Bible texts to the corpus repository (Trond)
  • add correct type differentiation to XSL processing - bug 504 (Saara)

5. Corpus infrastructure

Nothing.

6. Infrastructure

Speller testing is still fluctuating a bit.

7. Linguistics

North Sámi

Čorru > čorut
*Oslolaš with hyphen required, is printed now, but shouldn't
oslolaš - is done correctly now

TODO:

  • lexicalise actio compounds. Example: vuolggasadji vs. vuolginsadji ( Maaren)
  • fix stuorra-oslolaš lower case o ( Tomi)
    • add to Bugzilla (Sjur)
      • done

Lule Sámi

We have the same oslolaš derivation in smj too, but with another derivation.

Tjårro > tjårok
*Oslolaš with hyphen required, is printed now, but shouldn't
oslolaš - is done correctly now

smj propernoun bug issue: procedure

  1. convert from common base (which means sme base)
    1. Words not convertable should be added to separate smj lexicon, and words that should not be converted from sme sme should be moved to non-convert lexicon in sme???
  2. send to smj morphology

The original todo was to correct the smj morphology. Current test shows weaknesses in both camps:

  • conversion errors
  • words that should not have been converten
  • missing smj-unique names
  • errors in the morphology

Testing procedures:

  • analyse baseforms (as for sme)
  • generate a couple of caseforms from the baseforms, and inspect result

Suggestion: Let us first analyse the proper noun base forms for Lule Sámi, and thereafter look at the morphology.

TODO:

  • refine smj proper noun lexica, cf. the propernoun-smj-lex.txt ( Thomas, Trond)
  • ä/æ in speller, see bug report #411 (Tomi, Sjur)
    • done
  • lexicalise words from the Olavi missing list, but check against the pdf original where in doubt (Per-Eric)
  • add oslolaš type derivation test cases to the regresssion file ( Thomas)
  • sme->smj lexicon conversion to build bilingual lexicon resources, and increase smj coverage (Trond, Thomas, Tomi)

8. Name lexicon infrastructure

This sub-project needs to get up and running soon. Mainly Sjur's task.

Decisions made in Tromsø can be found in this meeting memo.

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

We have a first working demo!

TODO:

  • Hunspell lexicon conversion (Tomi, Børre)
    • working on it

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

TODO:

  • Set up ways of adding meta-information (source info, used in testing or not, added to lexicon or not) (Saara)
  • move Steinar's error markup in the xml files to (a copy of) the original ( Børre)

Automated testing

The infrastructure still fluctuating a bit.

TODO:

  • document the AppleScript testing tool (Sjur)
  • document the testing procedures (Sjur)
    • started
  • add baseform transducer test (Sjur)
    • done

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

All bugs fixed.

The latest changes to the Makefile should be reviewed after the lexicon bug we found last week. If possible, it should be reverted to the state before, to restore true dependencies, and most processing on the local computer (ie G5, and later XServe).

TODO:

  • fix PLX-related bugs (Tomi)
    • done, except for oslolaš
  • find a solution for smj clitics (Tomi)
    • done
  • test whether we can revert Makefile changes, and if positive, revert them (Tomi)

New public beta

We are ready to deliver one now. What needs to be done:

TODO:

  • collect/build an e-mail notify list; we make it simple, a text document with e-mail addresses (Sjur, Børre, others)
  • update list of fixed and known issues - Tuesday afternoon (Sjur, Risten)
  • update translations of README-files - Thursday afternoon ( Risten, Thomas, Sjur, Trond)
  • update installation packages (Sjur)
  • announce the beta (Sjur)

10. Other

Corpus contracts

Delayed till after final release.

TODO:

  • publish corpus contracts and project infra as open-source on NoDaLi-sta ( Sjur)

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.

62 open Divvun/Disamb bugs (32 of these 56 are speller-related bugs, 30 are general bugs), and 23 risten.no bugs

11. Next meeting, closing

The next meeting is 8.10.2007, 09: 30 Norwegian time.

The meeting was closed at 10: 26.
