This paper explores two different methods of learning dialectal morphology from a small parallel corpus of standard and dialect-form text, given that a computational description of the standard morphology is available. The goal is to produce a model that translates individual lexical dialectal items to their standard dialect counterparts in order to facilitate dialectal use of available NLP tools that only assume standard-form input. The results show that a learning method based on inductive… CONTINUE READING
