Automatic Diacritic Restoration for African Languages

The orthography of many African languages includes diacritically marked characters. Falling outside the scope of the standard Latin encoding, these characters are often represented in digital language resources as their unmarked equivalents. This renders corpus compilation more difficult, as these languages typically do not have the benefit of large electronic dictionaries to perform diacritic restoration.

This is a demonstration system for a diacritic restoration method that is able to automatically restore diacritics on the basis of local graphemic context. It is based on the machine learning method of Memory-Based learning. We have applied the method to the African languages of Cilubà, Gĩkũyũ, Kĩkamba, Maa, Sesotho sa Leboa, Tshivenḓa and Yoruba.

You can find more information on this system in this paper

Select a language and enter the word or sentence you want to restore diacritics for.
Cilubà (e.g. mutekete)
Gĩkũyũ (e.g. nituronire)
Kĩkamba (e.g. ningulilikana)
Maasai (e.g. oltunani)
Sesotho sa Leboa (Northern Sotho) (e.g. swanetse)
Tshivenḓa (e.g. tshiswitulo)
Yoruba (e.g. isinku)

The Centre for Text Technology (CTexT) at the North-West University (South Africa) is developing proprietary spelling checkers for various African languages. In order to conduct this project successfully, we are currently sourcing various resources, most notably electronic resources (word lists, corpora, etc.) and people (experts and assistants) to contribute to the project.
