  • set up the Leopard Server features for collaborative support - permanent chat rooms, project calendar(s), wiki? (Børre, Sjur)

6. Linguistics

North Sámi

Hyphenation bugs still there, needs improved test bench.

Lule Sámi

Hyphenation: same as for sme.

TODO:

  • sme->smj lexicon conversion to build bilingual lexicon resources, and increase smj coverage (Trond, Svenne). Add the words when all words are ready.

South Sámi

TODO:

  • check the present sources (Sjur, Trond)

7. Name lexicon infrastructure

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)

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:

  • Hunspell lexicon conversion (Tomi, Børre)
  • add ‰>:‰> before every +Fem etc. tag (Thomas)
    • done
  • add %>:0 alphabet entry in twolc, with a %> variant for HUNSPELL ( Thomas)
    • done

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 correct files to the corpus repository (Børre)
    • done
  • test new and nested error markup (Sjur)

Automated testing

TODO:

  • improve hyphenation testing (Sjur)
    • working on it
  • add verb paradigm generation bug to Bugzilla (Sjur)

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

Open issues based on test results:

sme

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:

  • improve hyphenation testing (Sjur)
  • contact DG and MÁ about proofing tools for InDesign (Sjur)
    • Done
  • test that the hyphenation is identical in InDesign and the command line hyphenator (Sjur)

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:

  • compounds
  • derivations
  • names
  • misspellings
  • compounds with acros, numbers, names, etc.

TODO:

  • create hyphenation test data (Thomas)

Windows installer

TODO:

  • investigate the NSIS installer (Børre, Sjur)

Releases

TODO:

  • update the Changes document (Maaren)
  • release InDesing tools Jan. 30. (Børre, Sjur, Thomas, Tomi)
    • compile new lexicons (Tomi)
    • test (all)
    • document (Sjur)
    • package and release (Sjur)

Corpus contracts + open source

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.

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