Re: Linux: Greece Polytonic Keyboard (Gnome)

This may be getting a bit past b-greek's core topics, but... It is possible to transition Linux systems from one desktop environment to another without a re-install. However, it may not always be supported by your typical distribution. IIRC, Ubuntu has the ability to install LXDE (the desktop enviro...

Re: Normalizing Greek for indexing

Hi Nathan, I wasn't suggesting a language switch... Just that the array/hash mappings and other code used to normalize the Greek words are easy to borrow and adapt. Nigel. Understood. I can read PHP well enough that I can probably adapt what you've already accomplished. If I use the find magnifying...

Normalizing Greek for indexing

Nearly two years ago I posted some questions about the normalization of Greek words. In recent weeks I have renewed my interest in this topic, as I have been examing the ElasticSearch platform. In addition to query and document retrieval, it can include metadata tagging for documents, so that parsin...

Cool, thanks for filling me in. We have some compute clusters at work, so I was curious what you were working with.

Can you share a bit about the computing environment you use?

Re: Like, καθώς κτλ.

Another interesting particle I have noticed is the use of "just" in extemporaneous prayer, e.g. "Heavenly father, we just pray that you would just..." In a former church of mine, this was very common, and was hard to ignore once I noticed it.

Re: Wallace, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics

In my undergraduate program we studied Wallace in the 3rd year advanced courses. In the fourth year we had a reading course outside of the New Testament (apostolic fathers, LXX, Josephus, and some of the classics). When I made it to fourth year, there was only one other student, and we met in our pr...

Re: I want to convert unicode to monotonic and ascii

The non-laborious way would of course to have a computer do that for you. :-) The task of converting a polytonic Unicode word into all the permutations down to monotonic Unicode can be done by a script. Here is an example of removing all diacritics using Python. It would require a bit more work to f...
