Computer Description of African Languages

Project Details


Interest in computer description of African languages resulted in 2000 in the establishment of CO-DEAL (Computer Description of African Languages), where the Universities of Helsinki, Leipzig, UNISA (University of South Africa) and Stellenbosch (South Africa) each carry out research on African languages. A joint approach, i.e. the use of finate-state automata in description, has made it possible to arrange a series of workshops for participants of these universities.
