Language-specific notes

This file (smi-propernouns.lexc) when applied to sme

This file was originally written for sme, and is copied directly to the langs/sme catalogue without modification.

Documenting (parts of) the lexicon structure for sme:

Final syll. stressed unstressed
final X+i/j DUBAI (V+j) PIPPI (C+i)
other final V NYST؇ ACCRA

‡) Also -i- without a preceeding long vowel, like in DUBAI.

This file (smi-propernouns.lexc) when applied to sma, smj and smn.

For sma, smj and smn, there is a script, src/scripts/smi-sma-conversion.pl changing the lexicon names from sme-style to sma/smj/smn-style. The resulting file is src/morphology/stems/smi-sma-propernouns.lexc, with the content of this file following the text Dump from SMI. This is governed in src/morphology/Makefile.am

Modifications for sma

MAKI er for finske i-finale navn hvor sørsamisk og lulesamisk følger ulike mønster. PIPPi i smj, ACCRA i sme og sma.

Modifications for sma

BETFAGE er spesifikk for lulesamisk, og er identisk med ACCRA for dei andre samiske språka. BETFAGE skal brukast ved e-finale ACCRA-ord.

Modifications for smn
