The Finnish morphology and tools
This repository contains finite state source files for the Finnish language, for building morphological analysers, proofing tools and dictionaries. The data and implementation are licenced under GPLv3 licence, also detailed in the LICENSE. The authors named in the AUTHORS file are available to grant other licencing choices.
Download and test speller files
The speller files downloadable at the top of this page (the
*.bhfst files) can
be used with divvunspell, to test their
performance. These files are the exact same ones as installed on users' computers
and mobile phones. Desktop and mobile speller files differ from each other in the
error model and should be tested separately — thus also two different downloads.
