Catalan (Wikipedia:Catalan language) is a Romance language. It is available in Apertium as a standalone analyser/generator (apertium-cat) and as a component of several pairs which translate to/from Catalan.

Current status[edit]

Last update: 28 Aug 2017

Dix entries: 56,588

Dix paradigms: 607

Coverage: 94.04% (Wikipedia)

Dictionary guidelines[edit]

The current Catalan dictionary is quite big (more than 55,000 entries), so tidiness is essential to ensure future development:

  • Keep entries sorted alphabetically.
  • Keep entries grouped by type and tags (do not mix different types of proper nouns together).
  • Check the file with apertium-dixtools (to update the number of entries and remove duplicates).

Proper nouns[edit]

Catalan proper nouns (names, toponyms, acronyms, etc.) should all have gender and number. They were once removed, but they should be specified using the following paradigms:

  • Toponyms <np><top><m><sg>: Iran__np
  • Toponyms <np><top><f><sg>: Àfrica__np
  • Toponyms <np><top><m><pl>: Estats_Units__np
  • Toponyms <np><top><f><pl>: Balears__np
  • Antroponyms <np><ant><m><sg>: Marc__np
  • Antroponyms <np><ant><f><sg>: Maria__np
  • Family names <np><cog><mf><sp>: Saussure__np
  • Others <np><al><m><sg>: Linux__np
  • Others <np><al><f><sg>: Wikipedia__np
  • Others <np><al><m><pl>: Jocs_Olímpics__np
  • Others <np><al><f><pl>: Falles__np
  • Others <np><al><mf><sp>: Honda__np

Future work[edit]

  • Add support for proper noun articles (en/na).
  • Restore gender and number to proper nouns that still do not have them.
  • Tweak entries related to proper nouns with translations (kings, queens, etc.).
    • This is already partially done using lexical selection and a specific macro in several language pairs
