General stuff[edit]

From Gramadóir[edit]

The text below is largely reproduced verbatim from information emailed by Kevin Scannell

First, DIREC-multi.txt contains some ga-gd multi-word phrases, but without any markup. It's incomplete, but you might find it useful.

The main thing of interest is the gd lexicon I'm sending. It is in the file focloir.txt. It's tab-separated, with three fields per line. First is the word, ending in an underscore and then its part of speech. The other two fields contain inflection information, either numerical codes or explicit words if there's something irregular about the word.

focloir.txt is processed by the perl script, also attached. It is used as both the user interface for adding new words to focloir.txt and also to export focloir.txt to a part-of-speech tagged word list suitable for use with gramadoir. Specifically, the lexicon-gd.txt file here:
