  • questions and answers

Since last time


Internal discussion on providing tools:

Can't find them in the contract, but we see the advantages of a short development loop on your side.

It is part of your offer, page 5 (or 9), section "6 Linguistic updates".


Been working on the new hyphenator engine. Finished by end of this week or beginning of next week. The first drop will happen then.


  • fixed a bug in the Office 2004 speller.
  • included more characters for the tokenizer (incl. Inari and Skolt Sámi chars); it easy to change or add more later if needed


  • made more linguistic updates and corrections.
  • been working on the PLX conversion, technical specification of the PLX format would be nice


  • finishing the new hypheantion engine
  • drop the next speller version (sme and smj), and the first hyphenator; this will be the official Alpha drop, and should be accompanied with an e-mail stating this.
  • try to provide the first batch of PLX encoded data

Possible issues

The phonetic rules do not allow specifying word beginnings or ends at the moment. No plans to change this immediately.

Next meeting

Next Tuesday (14.11.) at the usual time.


  • continue to improve hyphenation (Sjur and Thomas)
  • continue with speller data generation/conversion (Tomi)
    • Divvun could provide partial data in PLX format for testing and feedback purposes
  • get language codes to work with Mac Office 2004 (and check MacOffice 2007) ( Polderland)
  • provide the Divvun project with the PLX format specification (Polderland)
  • deliver Alpha versions (Polderland)
