3. Documentation

Nothing new.

TODO:

4. Corpus infrastructure

Nothing.

5. Infrastructure

Børre has been working on moving giellatekno.uit.no and www.divvun.no to the G5. The plan is to finish the work tomorrow.

Sjur has installed eXist on the G5 (but no risten.no yet).

6. Linguistics

North Sámi

Proper nouns and hyphens: when the name derives, like in -laš, we should get a hyphenation point in front of the derivation, but we don't. Example:

Oslo > os^lo*laš
* = missing hyphenation point

sme $ lookup -flags mbTT -utf8 bin/hyph-sme.fst
0%>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>100%
oslolaš
oslolaš Os^lolaš

sme$lookup -flags mbTT -utf8 bin/hyphrules-sme.fst 
0%>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 100%
oslolaš
oslolaš os^lo^laš

One possible solutioln is to introduce a marker for derivational suffixes (and, by extension to other languages, also prefixes):

  • > - suffix
  • < - prefix

What about inflectional suffixes? > is used in sma and nob. This speaks against using it for derivation.

root*1*der*2*infl
    %>     %>
Der1 Der2 Der3
C+   VC*  CVC

l u  tags, stem
l l  diacr  here
= 
g u  diacr  here
g l  wordform (w or w/o hyphen)

>: 0 - no hyphenation

If visisble hyphenation: >: - IFF _ C V >: 0 IFF _ C #

HYPH = read regex ( @\"$(TARGET)/bin/hyphrules-$(TARGET).fst\"  .o. \
					@\"$(TARGET)/bin/hyph-i$(TARGET).save\"     .o. \
					@\"$(TARGET)/bin/$(TARGET)-norm.fst\" ) ; \n
SPLRNONREC = read regex [ [@\"$(TARGET)/bin/derivation-filter.fst\"     ] .o. \
						  [@\"$(TARGET)/bin/spellernonrec-$(TARGET).save\"  ] .o. \
						  [@\"common/bin/downcase.fst\"                 ] .o. \
						  [@\"common/bin/remove-hyphen.fst\"            ] .o. \
						  [@\"$(TARGET)/bin/hyphrules-$(TARGET).fst\".i ]     \
						] ; \n

os^lolaš

os^lo^laš
os^lo^laš       os^lo^laš       +?

In smj, also inflections fall outside our hyphenation rules:

Basudissaj
Basudissaj      Ba^su^dissaj
Bájddárin
Bájddárin       Bájd^dárin
Bájddárin       Bájd^dárin
Heandarahkii
Heandarahkii    Hean^da^rahkii

TODO:

  • fix hyphenation of derivations (Thomas, Tomi, Sjur, Trond)
    • meeting today after lunch, 12: 30

Lule Sámi

TODO:

  • lexicalise words from the Olavi missing list, but check against the pdf original where in doubt (Per-Eric)
  • sme->smj lexicon conversion to build bilingual lexicon resources, and increase smj coverage (Trond, Thomas, Svenne)
  • sme->smj name conversion (Trond, Thomas)
  • add proper nouns (Thomas, Ilona)
  • look at missing baseforms (Thomas)

7. 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. set up Tomcat and risten.no on the G5 again (Sjur, Børre)
    1. install risten.no
      1. eXist is now installed
  2. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  3. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  4. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: ( Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  5. 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)
  6. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files ( Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  7. 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)
  8. start to use the xml file as source file
  9. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  10. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  11. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  12. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  13. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils ( linguists)

8. Proofing tools

Hunspell

TODO:

  1. Follow-up support for the sami languages in OpenOffice.org (Børre, Sjur)
  2. Hunspell lexicon conversion (Tomi, Børre)
  3. add hunspell testing to the make file (Sjur)
  4. debug and fix remaining conversion issues (Børre, Tomi)

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, Kimme)
  • add nested error markup to xml conversion (Saara)
  • test new and nested error markup (Sjur)

Automated testing

TODO:

  • add hyphenation testing (Sjur)
  • add hunspell testing (Saara, Sjur)
  • add paradigm testing (Børre, Sjur)

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

Open issues based on test results:

482 - still problematic, 552 - still open, Svierigadárogielan - still rejected

sme

397 - not as good as it should be, 408 - fixed, 419, 425 - roman number, 431, 452 - miel is a prefix, 461 - ovda accepted, almost 50 % (17) gets correct suggestion, 489, 508 - fixed, 522, 524.

TODO:

  • look at test cases still not behaving properly (Thomas, Tomi)

InDesign tools

TODO:

  • add hyphenation testing (Sjur)

Hyphenators

We should look into the possibility of generating pattern-based hyphenation for OOo. It shouldn't be too hard, or require too much work, but needs investigation.

TODO:

  • get command line hyphenator (Sjur)

Release version

The CD cover etc. will be worked on by John-Marcus Kuhmunen, and will follow the SD design rules. He is now waiting for the text to be put on the CD cover and other places.

There is a bug when installing from CD over an old installation.

TODO:

  • try to burn a CD at SD (Risten, Leif-Åge)
  • write text to go on the CD cover (Risten)
  • set up CD-printing printer (Risten)
  • fix Windows CD installation bug (Sjur, Børre)

Actual release

December 11-13, one of these days.

9. Other

Corpus contracts

Delayed till after final release.

TODO:

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

Faroese

Speller for fao using our infrastructure and the knowledge we have.

TODO:

  • set up a telephone meeting with them and Sjur ( Trond)

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.

69 open Divvun/Disamb bugs (35 of these 56 are speller-related bugs, 34 are other bugs), and 23 risten.no bugs

SD yearly personell seminar

6.-7. December. Sjur will discuss it with Julia, but our view is that we don't have time to go this year. The release are just a few days later.

Software updates

  • SubEthaEdit
  • Leopard, 10.5
  • Skype 2.6.x
