This is a foma interface implemented in Python. Requires libfoma installed.
This is a stand-alone Python utility for reading AT&T files and applying transductions. Useful for minimizing dependencies. Also supports weighted transducers, in which case
apply() returns output strings in least-cost order.
This is a simple helper tool for debugging foma-scripts that are sequences of phonological rules meant to apply in a certain order. It assumes a grammar is written as a sequence of define-statements and ordered rewrite-rules combined with a chain-statement (simulating composition of the rules). It then passes words from STDIN through the sequence of transducers and prints a decorated output to STDOUT where rules that fire are shown between brackets.
# myscript.foma def ARule a -> b || c _ d; # Rule one def BRule b -> c || _ d; # Rule two chain ARule, BRule
We can now run the following, passing the word
cad through the two transducers and tracing the rule actions:
$echo "cad" | python phonrule.py myscript.foma
and the output is
cad[ARule|Rule one]cbd[BRule|Rule two]ccd
