Linguists running the Singelloop 2024

— Posted in Hardlopen by

On Friday 12 April 2024, 15 linguists from LUCL – the LUCL Runners – ran the Leiden Singelloop. All running linguists completed the +/- 6km course on the ‘singels of Leiden’. Afterwards, we enjoyed each other's company during the annual post-run party at Olga van Marion and Ton van der Wouden’s house along the route.

Bug fixes and new feature n-gram generator

— Posted in Taal by

Unfortunately, due to work on large-file loading, some bugs slipped in, causing the n-gram generator to present incorrect results. Luckily, one of the users attended me to this problem, and the last few days I have fixed a number of related bugs. Atop that, I have implemented a number of checks to prevent really incorrect results in the future.

Finally, I have added n option to remove possessive 's, so now you can choose whether you’d like ‘Harry’s’ to be counted as ‘Harrys’ or ‘Harry’. Some general statistics (word totals, TTR) were added to.
