Project Description

Once a Portuguese dictionary has been created, a phrase parser can be implemented. A phrase parser involves taking in Portuguese text and parsing it linguistically into noun phrases, verb phrases, and other phrases.

  • Become familiar with the Portuguese dictionary
  • Become familiar with NLP++ and VisualText
  • Come up with a strategy for parsing phrases in Portuguese
  • Implement the phrase parser in NLP++
  • Run the phrase parser using the NLP++ ECL Plugin
  • Create an NLP++ repository for the full Portuguese Parser

By the mid term review we would expect you to have:

  • A design for parsing Portuguese into phrases
