INTRODUCTION

NE Wordnet Project for Assamese & Bodo started in 2009.

NE Wordnet Project for Assamese & Bodo have been developed with
expansion approach with the Original Hindi Wordnet structure

NE Wordnet Development Project outcomes till now
Validation

All the Assamese and Bodo Wordnet activities have been
reviewed by the Professors of the Department of
Assamese, Modern Indian Language & Bodo of Gauhati
University as well as other invited resource persons.
Contd….

The developed NE Wordnet structured in the form of Database,
integrated with interactive Interface is ready for different NLP
research and Development. Different NLP application and research
related works already started using the NE WordNet.

Automatic Bilingual Dictionary Construction: Assamese-Bodo
Dictionary Construction : Prototype developed at Gauhati University.

Web based Automatic Multilingual Dictionary Construction:
Assamese-Bodo-Nepali-Hindi-English Dictionary Construction: Full
Web based System ready: By Gauhati University Team.

Intelligent Document Categorizing System: Prototype Developed and
Tested at Gauhati University: Research Paper already accepted for
GWA-2010.

Problems Faced During Development for Assamese

Synset related: In common synsets of Assamese and Bodo, a few
number of synsets do not have proper Assamese word to represent. So
they are not entered yet. Those left synsets have been send to the expert
committee to review.

Expansion from Hindi/English: The main challenge in expansion
approach is in one to one mapping.
Problems Faced During Development for Bodo

Challenges in Expansion
Bodo is a developing language. It does not have a very strong
linguistic resource. Also literature resource is very limited. The
language does not have enough vocabulary, and new and new words
are being discovered, coined and added. As a result, the
development of Bodo Wordnet faces typical and frequent problems,
and overcoming the problems to accommodate expansion of the
Hindi Wordnet with one to one mapping has been a big challenge

Conclusion

Integration and collaboration of the man powers in the field of
Linguistics and Computing; Trained man power development in
the field of NLP, Local Language Technology Development.

Through this project a new breed of researchers in language
technologies have been trained for proper skills and knowledge
sets. As in these local languages the linguistic and Literature
studies in formal education are with minimum computational
linkage, and with no training/exposure for interlinking of
linguistics and computing, the project facilitates in developing a
team of interdisciplinary researchers. The project has
contributed in expertise development and awareness creation in
latest in machine translation, lexical semantics, cross lingual IR
etc. in specific.
