Re: [Tlhingan-hol] keeping "KLI folklore" words in word lists

Casey Ransberger (

<div dir="ltr">I have an idea. Picture a graph where a word has associated symbols marking it as significant in different ways, like #canon and #st3, or #noun or #verb (I guess I&#39;m describing what&#39;s popularly called &quot;tagging.&quot;)<div><br></div><div>It would then be pretty trivial to expose via e.g. web UI a way for regular folks like us to be able to search and filter based on any of these adjectives.</div><div><br></div><div>For the CS folks, a further elaboration on this idea might be to find interesting relationships between words and start to map those out (either automatically, or let users do it wiki-style.) Then it goes past tagging and starts to look more like a semantic network.</div><div><br></div><div>I got to thinking about this because I found myself really wanting some kind of rudimentary syntax highlighting for writing Klingon when I kept saying absolutely the wrong thing with typos. That got me thinking about where I was going to get the data, which I can&#39;t take from the book for copyright reasons. If users create the graph, then there&#39;s at least an argument that this isn&#39;t &quot;stolen data.&quot;</div><div><br></div><div>Blah blah blah,</div><div><br></div><div>--the Fancy New Guy (FNG)</div></div><div class="gmail_extra"><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Wed, Dec 17, 2014 at 3:35 AM, Lieven <span dir="ltr">&lt;<a href=""; target="_blank"></a>&gt;</span> wrote:<blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"><span class=""><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex">
btw, what&#39;s the canon status of the Klingon in the Haynes manual?<br>
Only the word {petqaD} &quot;medical device to bond broken bones&quot;, where Okrand only said:<br>
&quot;Maltz said it was a good word, though sort of technical.&quot;<br>

He wanted to have a look at other words, but probably forgot about that.<span class=""><br>
