Sammanfattning
As languages go extinct, the linguistic heritage of human kind increasingly resides in grammars and dictionaries often difficult to access. The project aims at enhancing access to this heritage by making a collection of more than 9,000 PDF documents available in a stable archive enriched by added metadata and computational tools developed to search information within the texts. Moreover, dictionaries will be converted to apps for mobile devices that can be distributed to speakers of minority languages, handing back some of their linguistic heritage. Another aim of the project is to develop information-extraction tools specifically tailored to the task of dealing with language descriptions.
