( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm interested in getting ideas on how to go about writing a program to take two lists of words and try to match morphemes. One list would be in English, the other list would be in a langauge that is known at runtime. The bound morphemes would be predictable(plural, tense, aspect...) but the number of "roots" would not be known until the program has gone through the lists. For example:
Data: baSlar,heads BaSlarimiz,our heads baSimda,in my head
Would return something like:
baS,head -lar,inflectional:plural -imiz,our - -imda,in my -
(or instead of 'in my - ' it would return a description.) These observations may not be true for the language, but they are true for the data that we have. When rules contradict eachother the program might look at the data closer to see if the rule is more complex, or it might decide that since the occurance of the rule is once out of x times, it is an exception, or that since two rules occur 50% each, they are both acceptable. The word lists would generally be around 100-200 entries... I'll try to get a bigger sample to play with tomorrow. I read the article in tpj #17 and while it was interesting, I still don't know where to start...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
