Abstract

Our demo presents work from a joint project with a twofold goal: To build a parser and disambiguator for North and Lule Sámi, and to make a practical spell-checker for the same languages. The core analyser is written with the Xerox tools twolc, lexc and fst ([1]), and the disambiguator uses constraint grammar (vislcg). Cf. [2] for a presentation.
