Skolt Sami Oahpa
The goal of the project is to make Oahpa available to Skolt Sámi in Finland, Norway and Russia.
Skolt Sámi and Oahpa
Oahpa has 6 programs, nicely dividing themselves in 3 groups
- Learn words
Leksa: Basic vocabulary
Numra: Numerals, clock and dates
- Leksa: Basic vocabulary
- Learn to inflect
Morfa-S: Inflect words
Morfa-C: Inflect words in context
- Morfa-S: Inflect words
- Learn to write sentences
Vasta: Answer to questions
- Sahka: Chat with the computer
- Vasta: Answer to questions
The Morfa programs require a morphological analyser, and the Sentence programs require a syntax analyser. For the North Sámi Oahpa all 6 programs are most developed.
Skolt Sámi Oahpa
The plan for the moment is to create the programs Leksa and Numra for Skolt Sámi. Morfa requires a finite state transducer, which is not yet available.
Lexical items for the Skolt Sámi Oahpa are taken from a beginners' textbook prepared in three languages (Finnish, Russian, Norwegian) by the project Skolt Sámi Culture Across Borders.
The current trial version 0.2 was compiled in August 2012. It includes about 100 lexical items in English, Finnish, Norwegian, Russian and Skolt Sámi.
