Summary of the paper

Title The Alaskan Athabascan Grammar Database
Authors Sebastian Nordhoff, Siri Tuttle and Olga Lovick
Abstract This paper describes a repository of example sentences in three endangered Athabascan languages: Koyukon, Upper Tanana, Lower Tanana. The repository allows researchers or language teachers to browse the example sentence corpus to either investigate the languages or to prepare teaching materials. The originally heterogeneous text collection was imported into a SOLR store via the POIO bridge. This paper describes the requirements, implementation, advantages and drawbacks of this approach and discusses the potential to apply it for other languages of the Athabascan family or beyond.
Topics Endangered Languages, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.), Typological Databases
