Abstract

The paper describes developments to date on the EMILLE Project (Enabling Minority Language Engineering) being carried out at the Universities of Lancaster and Sheffield. EMILLE was established to construct a 67 million word corpus of South Asian languages. In addition to undertaking this corpus construction, the project has had to address a number of related issues in the context of establishing
a language engineering (LE) environment for South Asian language processing, such as translating 8-bit language data into Unicode and producing a number of basic LE tools. The development of tools on EMILLE has contributed to the on-going development of the LE architecture GATE.
