Possible issues with hfst-pmatch:

Tommi: You cannot get your tokeniser as you analyse with ambiguos readings in middle of the string from pmatch; if “in order to” is lrlm there won’t be “in” “order” “to” using pmatch applicator.

Sjur: Can this be changed in the pmatch code to collect all paths up until a common tokenisation point?

Tommi: Wouldn’t it in the end be just as much work as rewriting from scratch and probably harder? Like, using pmatch for this with these specs is like having a hammer and trying very hard to use it on screws cause they kind of look like a nail.

See [] for details on how to use (hfst-)pmatch.

arbeid til Mike

Mike to try out hfst-pmatch for a month, then we evaluate the feasibility of hfst-pmatch as an analysing tokeniser.

wishlist for tokeniser

Two possible tokenisations:

"<in order to>"
    "in order to" pr


    "order" vblex pres
    "order" n sg

    "to" pr

Re unicode regexes: “You can match a single character belonging to the “letter” category with \p{L}. You can match a single character not belonging to that category with \P{L}.” See [] for details.

Which tools support Unicode regexes? pcre? Yes, I believe so. Any decent and recent programming language with proper ICU-based Unicode support :)
