Automatic creation of bilingual dictionaries for Finno-Ugric languages
AbstractWe introduce an ongoing project whose objective is to provide linguistically based support for several small Finno-Ugric digital communities in generating online content. To achieve our goals, we collect parallel, comparable and monolingual text material for the following Finno-Ugric (FU) languages: Komi-Zyrian and Permyak, Udmurt, Meadow and Hill Mari and Northern Sami, as well as for major languages that are of interest to the FU community: English, Russian, Finnish and Hungarian. Our goal is to generate proto-dictionaries for the mentioned language pairs and deploy the enriched lexical material on the web in the framework of the collaborative dictionary project Wiktionary. In addition, we will make all of the project’s products (corpora, models, dictionaries) freely available supporting further research.
