An Electronic Dictionary and Translation System for Murrinh-Patha
Seiss, Melanie; Nordlinger, Rachel
European Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL), Paper presented at the European Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL) Annual Conference (Nottingham, United Kingdom, Aug 31-Sep 3, 2011)
This paper presents an electronic dictionary and translation system for the Australian language Murrinh-Patha. Its complex verbal structure makes learning Murrinh-Patha very difficult. Design learning materials or a dictionary which is easy to understand and to use also presents a challenge. This paper discusses some of the difficulties posed by the Murrinh-Patha verb system and proposes electronic resources which build on deep language processing to perform the required tasks.
