From Apertium
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Objective[edit]

This objective of this task is to convert tables of inflectional information on Wiktionary into a format useful for Apertium, e.g. speling format.

Example[edit]

For example, take the Bulgarian noun вода, the page on Wiktionary for вода has the inflection information for Bulgarian. The table looks something like:

Singular Plural
indefinite вода води
definite водата водите
vocative водо води

The equivalent in speling format would be:

вода; вода; sg.ind; n.f
вода; водата; sg.def; n.f
вода; водо; sg.voc; n.f
вода; води; pl.ind; n.f
вода; водите; pl.def; n.f
вода; води; pl.voc; n.f

Where n.f means "noun, feminine" (this information will also typically be on the Wiktionary page).


Note: for most parts of speech, the fourth column will just have the part of speech alone, and all other sub-tags in the third column, e.g. adjectives look like

vacker; vackert; abs.ind.sg.nt; adj
vacker; vackra; abs.pl; adj
