Sammanfattning

A lexical transducer is a language technology resource that is typically used to predict the orthographic word forms and to model the relation between the lexical and the surface word forms of a morphologically complex language. This paper motivates the construction of tone-enhanced lexical transducers for tonal languages and gives two supporting arguments for the feasibility of finite-state compilation of autosegmental derivations. According to the Common Timeline Argument, adding a common timeline to autosegmental representations is crucial for their computational processing. According to the Compilation Argument, the compilation of autosegmental grammars requires combining code-theoretic and model-theoretic research lines.
