Developing a Large-Scale Lexicon for a Less-Resourced Language: General Methodology and Preliminary Experiments on Sorani Kurdish

Abstract : In this paper, we describe a general methodology for developing a large-scale lexicon for a less-resourced language, i.e., a language for which raw internet-based corpora and general-purpose grammars are virtually the only existing resources. We apply this methodology to the development of a morphological lexicon for Sorani Kurdish, an Iranian language mostly spoken in northern Iraq and north-western Iran. Although preliminary, our results demonstrate the relevance of this methodology
