Automated Grammar Engineering for Verbal Morphology
Wax, David Allen
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines the cross-linguistic potential for the automatic analysis of verbal morphology and creation of implemented formal grammars using the Grammar Matrix customization system and the rich linguistic resource of interlinear glossed text (IGT). Each grammar is automatically customized from the LinGO Grammar Matrix core grammar, with a focus on the morphotactics, morphosyntax, and morphosemantics of verbal forms for the target languages. Each step of the process is evaluated for two low-resource languages, Turkish and Tagalog, with data from the Online Database of Interlinear Glossed Text, and over a specially curated set of IGT of the French verb <italic>faire</italic>.
