Sammanfattning

This paper presents an overview of linguistic resources available for the Sakha language, and presents new tools for supporting language learning for Sakha. The essential resources include a morphological analyzer, digital dictionaries, and corpora of Sakha texts. We extended an earlier version of the morphological analyzer/transducer, built on the Apertium finite-state platform. The analyzer currently has an adequate level of coverage, between 86% and 89% on two Sakha corpora. Based on these resources, we implement a language-learning environment for Sakha in the Revita computer-assisted language learning (CALL) platform. Revita is a freely available online language learning platform for learners beyond the beginner level. We describe the tools for Sakha currently integrated into the Revita platform. To our knowledge, at present this is the first large-scale project undertaken to support intermediate-advanced learners of a minority Siberian language.
