OpenKWS/Babel Data FAQ

  • Q: Why are lexical tokens with /*/, /-/ and /~/ not present on the lexicon files?
  • A: We did not include pronunciations for these terms. Sometimes you are lucky and the term is there because its non-cut-off form or the correctly pronounced form is there because it was uttered properly. This varies from language to language: Vietnamese may have better coverage because it is syllable based.
