project duration: July 1, 2004 - December 31, 2008

funded by Czech Academy of Science


Proposal submitted

The project focuses on fulltext information systems (containing both written and spoken materials) in Czech (when standard methods fail due to the different type of languages they have been developed for). The project aims to strengthen and improve current methods for morphological analysis of Czech, in order to attain higher precision in identifying lexical units and in some cases also their meaning. The project will use state-of-the-art statistical technology and machine learning based on linguistically annotated data. Within the project, such data will be prepared (at a fraction of the usual cost) by conversion of older resources, and tools will be created (based on the resulting larger corpus) that would have parameters needed for a successful application in end-user information systems.
