Good luck!

[edit] Writing a dependency grammar CG for Matxin

End your file with something like this:

 
AFTER-SECTIONS 

SUBSTITUTE (@SUBJ→)   (@SUBJ→ CHUNK) TARGET (@SUBJ→);
SUBSTITUTE (@←SUBJ)  (@←SUBJ CHUNK) TARGET (@←SUBJ);
SUBSTITUTE (@OBJ→)    (@OBJ→ CHUNK)  TARGET (@OBJ→);
SUBSTITUTE (@←OBJ)   (@←OBJ CHUNK)  TARGET (@←OBJ);
...

to define what you want to be a chunk.

Note that since Matxin expects that no non-CHUNK nodes may have CHUNK children, any word which might get a CHUNK daughter in the CG has to also get the CHUNK label.

[edit] Problems

[edit] Node insertion

How do we insert a node? Ie. what's the Matxin equivalent of <out><lu>...</lu></out>? This will be necessary for eg. adding determiners in front of nouns (í dag fáa vit svar => today we get a reply)

[edit] Deformatter

For some reason, the deformatter always adds "space dot" to the end of everything,

$ echo "Hví ikki?" | matxin-destxt /tmp/foo

gives

Hví ikki? .
