Analysing Norwegian at Giellatekno

What is this?

Giellatekno's main focus is on the Saami langauges and other circumpolar minority languages. As part of our work we need to build bilingual resources. This is where Norwegian comes in. For analysing Norwegian we either use the Oslo-Bergen tagger, or we use our own resources.

Dynamic documentation of our analyser for Bokmål

Documentation on the Norwegian analyser Oslo-Bergen-taggeren

The Oslo-Bergen tagger is available for Bokmål and Nynorsk. It has an official webpage, where it is available under GPL, this documentation is for the Giellatekno in-house use of it.

Documentation on our own resources for Norwegian

The analysers are modeled like all the other Giellatekno languages.

Our Norwegian analyser was an auxiliary device made for analysing Norwegian at a time when the Oslo-Bergen tagger was not freely available. It is based upon a huge wordform list, most of which has been manually converted to lemma/stem-based lexc format. One should also consider using the Oslo-Bergen tagger instead or our analyser.

Our disambiguator (The syntax file above) is based upon the Oslo-Bergen tagger, with some improvements
