Pedagogical software online

Meeting memos can be found at http://giellatekno.uit.no/ped/index.html#Meeting+memos

Goal for the Hattfjelldal meeting: Have a sma morfa game ready for the verbs in the Verbh book

TODO:

  • get the content ready (Lene)
  • implement the UI and functionality (Saara)
  • get an easy-to-remember URL (UiT/IT)
  • More thorough skin, layout, ... (External person within the Ped team, Internal forrest expert) This we will postponed until later
  • Make a pedagogical speller (Tomi when finished with his MA thesis)
    • Turn off peripheral compounds (numbers, acros, perhaps names)
    • Increase editing distance by one for suggestions? Only possible with limited compounding

Documentation

TODO:

  • start to reorganise the documentation (Børre, Sjur, Trond)

Corpus gathering

We discussed how the last corpus contacts of Per-Eric could be followed up either before he leaves the project, or by others in the project team.

TODO:

  • follow up on sma corpus texts (Sjur, Jovsset)
  • follow-up on the smj texts from Kurt Tore ( Per-Eric)
  • other contacts: Nord-Salten avis ( Børge Strandskog), Lena Davidsson daughter to Lars-Matto Tuolja
  • Ulf Stefan Winka has a lot of smj texts (Thomas)
  • plan a smj pr tour for our tools (Per-Eric, Thomas)

Future plans, directions and ideas

See a separate document in plan/strat/5year.jspwiki.

Infrastructure

To accomodate future enhancements in different directions (in rough order of importance):

  1. test bench for all parts of our language technology efforts
  2. migrate to svn
  3. merge gt, kt and st into one, probably after the svn move
  4. more modularised make / build infra (prepare for smn, sms, sjd, others)
  5. close certain parts of the code repository (requires svn)
  6. set up the Leopard Server features for collaborative support:
    1. permanent chat rooms
    2. stored (and indexed) chat transcripts of the chat rooms
    3. iCal server / group calendars
    4. wiki
  7. wiki? (is part of Leopard Server) or other web-based documentation
  8. improve Forrest stability and i18n support
  9. reorganise the documentation content:
    1. differ between target groups
    2. get better grouping
    3. decide what to write in forrest and what in wiki (cf. Apertium for a similar split)
    4. update/add missing parts
  10. migrate lexicons to XML, splitting the task
    1. Name lexica (the Name project)
    2. Dictionaries (already in XML, task is to integrate them)
    3. Open POSes (Komi as a test case)
  11. change the look of the documentation web
  12. sfst? Both as replacement for xfst and for hunspell/open-source proofing tools
  13. investigate the NSIS installer, potentially replacing the InstallShield package from Polderland
  14. corpus content moved to Max Planck repositories?

TODO:

  • make a test-all target that runs all tests we have (Børre, Sjur, Trond)
  • define and document testing routines (Børre, Sjur, Trond)
  • add Jabber account in iChat
    • UiT: Lene, Kimme, Saara (Trond)
  • prepare migration to svn (Børre, Sjur, Trond)
    • https access is now working. svn checkout https: //victorio.uit.no/repos
  • try to repair G5 accounts for iCal Server (Børre)

Linguistics

North Sámi

(nothing new, see proofing bugs below)

Lule Sámi

(nothing new, see proofing bugs below)

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

Jovsset will ask the authors whether we can get a copy of the Verbh manuscript in electronic version, with the usual corpus contract.

Name lexicon/risten.no infrastructure

TODO:

  1. fix i18n bug in risten.no/G5 (so they will work without the proper locale request) (Sjur)
  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)

Dictionaries

TODO:

  • clean up and generalise the make infrastructure
  • make Linux and Windows local/integrated versions
  • make simple installer applications
  • make a public release
    • Make a homepage with instructions for dictionary use: xtdoc/gtuit/src/documentation/content/xdocs/dict.eng.xml
    • Clarify the difference between local and online dictionaries:
      • Plugin for Firefox and Internet Explorer (online dictionaries)

Proofing tools

Hunspell

Børre has compiled a new set of lexicons, now also including smj:

sme.dic  50 MB
sme.aff 873 kB
smj.dic  17 MB
smj.aff 484 kB

These files are in 129.242.220.111 /Users/boerre/gt/tmp http: //divvun.no/static_files/hunspell-se-2008-05-23.zip

Installation (needs the last version of OpenOffice.org 2.4)

Under linux the files se.dic and se.aff must be copied to /usr/share/myspell/dicts/

In OS X the folder is /Applications/OpenOffice.org.app/Contents/share/dict/ooo/

Then these lines should be added to the following file:

in Linux: /usr/share/myspell/dicts/dictionary.lst

in Mac: /Applications/OpenOffice.org.app/Contents/share/dict/ooo/dictionary.lst

DICT se NO se
DICT se SE se
DICT se FI se
DICT smj NO smj
DICT smj SE smj

Divvun feedback

Jovsset was at the Giellagiella seminar last week, with language workers. They knew very little about the Divvun project, and what we provide. We need to inform better about ourselves and our "products".

Next meeting, closing

The next meeting is 9.6.2008, 9.30 Norwegian time.

The meeting was closed at 11: 00.
