Hi

 

Is there a sentence case parser ? I am at my wits end trying to wade thru case in deutsch.

I thot it's best I figured first how to identify cases in an english sentence.

 

Thanks for your help and time,

Mozmi.

 

See this site which mentions a few for various languages: Uni Potsdam, Frei verfügbare NLP-Tools, see esp. "Satz-Parser". For German, try the Zurich Dependency Parser, via their Demoseite. It works, one only needs to understand the abbreviations, e.g. VFIN 3 Sg Pres ind = finite verb, 3rd person singular, present tense, indicative mode.

Is there a word for abbreviaitions like Mrs., lb, and oz.? are there other ones that are different than how we say them? meaning: there is no 'r' when we say Mrs. 

I know that Libra and onza are the root words.

Why isn't "vious" a word?

Can you think of other words that should exist?

I give up, what's "vious" meant to be?

 

Any negation of a "ful" or "less"--pointful would be great, sounds like shit though that doesn't stop me using it in casual conversation with other Denglish speakers.

 

Graveness--gravity lends itself to ambiguity whether written or spoken.
