What I’m Working on Now

This is stuff I’m working on at the moment. The distinctions between short, medium, and long term are mostly to do with distance to completion but also, to a lesser extent, immediate focus.

Short Term

  • building out the Scaife Viewer online reading framework architecture (including support for displaying treebanks and translation alignment)
  • lemmatising the Apostolic Fathers (apostolic-fathers)
  • extracting information from Cunliffe’s Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect

Medium Term

  • putting together vocabulary lists for extensive reading
  • continuing to produce short instructional material (including videos) explaining little grammar topics (most recently a verb morpology tour and also an article on the first declension)
  • mapping various choices of lemmas in GNT (greek-lemma-mappings) and beyond (currently doing some clean up of LSJ headwords and also the Tyndale House lexicon)
  • finalising an improved set of morphology tags to use (see New Draft Morphological Tags for MorphGNT)
  • modelling accentuation to both test texts and rules: gnt-accentuation
  • extracting from lexicons principal parts, irregular forms, and other extant forms given as examples (beyond Cunliffe mentioned above)
  • experiments in vocabulary modeling and assessment at http://vocab.oxlos.org
  • extending the verb inflection modelling in greek-inflexion to cover the Nestle1904, LXX, and Apostolic Fathers
  • applying verb ending patterns to Logeion database for broader coverage
  • developing a database of principal parts
  • improving the nominal morphology support in greek-inflexion
  • extending morphology, lemmatisation, accentuation analysis to other (free) editions of GNT
  • continuing work on adaptive Greek reader (and other online learning tools)

Long Term

  • publishing a comprehensive morphological lexicon
  • publishing an executable grammar of Greek morphology
  • launching adaptive Greek reader and online learning tools
  • extending data to much larger range of Greek texts

I also (try to) have an ongoing engagement with the

  • linguistic linked data,
  • digital classics,
  • theoretical morphology, and
  • Word Grammar
