Old Icelandic paradigms (.tar.gz file, 360 Kb)
By Sean Crist
This is programming-oriented data and is not conveniently readable by a human. Contains around 34,000 inflected word forms, each tagged with the appropriate morphosyntactic tags (present, plural, subjunctive, etc.). Most of the paradigms were exploded by program; there are some errors. The main file is formatted to be easily read by program and could be used for tagging words within a text. Includes the data files and Perl scripts used to explode the paradigms. (Note: I hope that you find this collection useful, but I am providing NO SUPPORT for the data and software in this file) (First posted 15 Feb 2004)
