A two-session online workshop to discuss how information flows from one module to another in the Apertium pipeline,

Session #1: Tuesday, June 30, 1400Z–1600Z

(Under construction)

  • 10-minute/10-slide talks:
    • 1400Z Welcome and adjustments
    • 1410Z "Rule-based machine translation and the Apertium paradigm", Francis Tyers
      • I will present a short overview of rule-based machine translation paradigms and situate Apertium within them.
    • 1425Z "Why we want to eliminate trimming and the motivation for secondary information", Tanmai Khanna
      • I will try to give a background about the entire secondary information discussion. This started as a project to eliminate trimming, and secondary information came out of it as a possible solution to that and other problems, such as markup handling. I will present the pros and cons of trimming and why we want to eliminate it, and the possible solutions.
    • 1450Z "Reading-bound data as inline secondary tags", Tino Didriksen
      • "Reading-bound data is best transported as inline secondary tags, proven both by practical experience and theoretical complexity."
    • 1505Z "Moving all Multiwords to Apertium-separable", Daniel Swanson
      • "I will describe what would be involved in migrating most or all multiwords from monodixes to language-specific -separable rules, including the extent to which it can be automated and how it might impact the other debates surrounding trimming and secondary information. (If this is deemed out-of-scope for this discussion, let me know, though I'm interested in attending regardless.)"

  • ???
  • 1555Z Closing

Session #2: Thursday, July 2, 1400Z–1600Z
