Freiburg/Frankfurt, Germany (PRWEB UK) 7 October 2013
Frankfurt International Book Fair 2013 – Paragon Software Group, a leading software developer of the world’s most trusted dictionaries and reference applications since 1994, will showcase at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2013 new dictionary applications from the world’s leading publishers, including Duden - Die deutsche Rechtschreibung app with the most advanced 12 morphology characteristics integrated directly into the dictionary. Paragon Software has developed a mathematical model that combines the code and morphological data into a cross-platform library with a footprint of 25 MB. By simply clicking on any word form, the mobile user can now view up to 12 morphological characteristics, including tense, mood, voice, aspect, person, number, gender and case, declination, conjugation, person, case, mode, times, and others about any part of speech. Modern dictionary apps become more complex and multifaceted, with a single app increasingly presenting the content of multiple print editions with a special emphasis on detailed grammar information.
Why do we need morphology as part of the modern dictionary?
The integrated morphology module allows the user to learn how to analyze the language. The learner identifies patterns in conjugations and declensions, recognizes exceptions in the rules and memorizes these exceptions using the dictionary’s learning features. For example, just as the user types a declinaton or conjugation, the morphology feature displays the basic form of this word. That is, when the user types “took” the morphology feature suggests “take”.
Intergrating the morphology module within the dictionary app presents many challenges for the developer and publisher and is a very tedious task.
The morphology challenges include:
Paragon Software has cooperated with Duden, a German publisher, to integrate the morphology content into the dictionary app and they succeeded.
The industry’s first morphology implementation is for Duden - Die deutsche Rechtschreibung app, and:
Paragon Software will showcase its dictionary apps for 35 world languages available for all popular mobile and desktop operating systems at Stand M134, Hall 8.0. Alexander Zudin, Paragon Software’s CEO, will speak on October 9, at 14:30 p.m. in Hall 8.0 (Hot Spot Stage) on morphology as part of the modern dictionary.
