Test> linearize UseCl (Clause Sina_Pron (PredNP (AdjNP (UseN Mije_W) (UseA Sona_W))))
sina mije sona .


Test> parse "sina mije sona ."
UseCl (Clause Sina_Pron (PredNP (AdjNP (UseN Mije_W) (UseA Sona_W))))
UseCl (ClausePred (PredNP (AdjNP (AdjNP Sina_Pron (UseA Mije_W)) (UseA Sona_W))))
UseCl (ClausePred (PredNP (AdjNP (AdjNP (UseN Sina_W) (UseA Mije_W)) (UseA Sona_W))))

Explanation

Example

Consider the following parse tree:

"sina mije sona ." ->

UseCl (Clause
          Sina_Pron
          (PredNP
              (AdjNP (UseN Mije_W) (UseA Sona_W))))

A Clause consists of a subject and a predicate. The subject is the pronomen sina. The predicate PredNP is a noun phrase predicate mije sona, which is a noun mije with adjective sona.

The constructor UseCl cl makes a sentence by adding a dot at the end of the clause.

All the constructors are commented in the file grammar/GrammarBase.gf.

Read the treebank

Toki Pona examples and corresponding parse trees can be found in treebank.json. If a feature is explained in chapter NN, then the corresponding entries are under ID tplangLNN*.

A sample entry from the treebank:

  {
    "en": "This is a person.",
    "gf": "UseCl (Clause (UseN Ni_W) (PredNP (UseN Jan_W)))",
    "id": "tplangL02E01",
    "tp": "ni li jan ."
  },

Each entry has:

  • unique id,
  • en: English phrase,
  • tp: Toki Pona equivalent of the English phrase,
  • gf: preferred parse tree for the Toke Pona phrase.

PU treebank

The file ./external/pu_phrases/treebank.txt contains all the phrases from the official Toki Pona book.

Test

The file treebank.json is a test fixture. To check the conversion:

$ make test

or individually:

$ make test-parse
$ make test-linearize # or just test-lin
$ make test-pu-parse

Use a regular expression in --grep to check a specific example:

python3 utils/check_parse.py --grep "L02"
python3 utils/check_linearize.py --grep "L02"
