Description of the project:
The interaction of "z-c mutation" with "pluralization" rule was
reminiscent of Lab 1a. It was fixed similarly to the
fix in lab 1a, by modifying the automata to introduce +:e arcs.
Adding more nouns and verbs would not increase the complexity
of the system; though increasing rules (conjugation, e.g.) may
increase it a bit. As far as the complexity for myself, it
would be more of a challenge to figure out the correct roots
to include; but this is a challenge for the developer
of the system (perhaps there are helper tools) but does not
increase system complexity.
- Underlying character J is
introduced, for the handling of "g-j mutation".
- BACK and FRONT subsets for vowels, and
CONS subset for consonants are introduced, as described in the lab.
BACK and FRONT vowel subsets are used to handle "g-j mutation"
and "z-c mutation" respectively, to decide when the mutation happens.
The CONS subset is needed to handle the pluralization rule.
Conjugation rules are handled by the three V_SUFFIXn definitions
in the lexicon, and NUMBER is used for indication of whether a noun is
singular or plural.
