Undergraduate research

XML
Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education, ITiCSE English 2012 Zawilinski is our Java library that helps undergraduates conduct research on Wikipedia and Wiktionary. It simplifies the loading and filtering MediaWiki XML dumps so that the resulting object tree will fit into the memory of a typical PC, thereby eliminating the need for advanced programming techniques to access Wikipedia and Wiktionary data. 0 0
Encouraging language students to contribute inflection data to Wiktionary Wiktionary

Wiki
WikiSym English 2010 We propose building a computer program to simplify access to the inflection (i.e., “word ending”) data in Wiktionary. This program will make it easier to both (1) look up a word’s inflections and, more importantly, (2) edit incorrect inflections. We expect that such a program will encourage foreign language students to both use Wiktionary as a resource and contribute inflection and other grammar data toWiktionary. We believe that the resulting additional activity will make Wiktionary a better resource for students — especially students of those languages for which there are no cheap, comprehensive inflection resources — and provide data that will be beneficial to the wiki research community 1 0

Wiktionary
WikiSym 2010 English 2010 We present Zawilinski, a Java library that supports the extraction and analysis of grammatical data in Wiktionary. Zawilinski can efficiently (1) filter Wiktionary for content pertaining to a specified language, and (2) extract a word's inflections from its Wiktionary entry. We have thus far used Zawilinski to (1) measure the correctness of the inflections for a subset of the Polish words in the English Wiktionary and to (2) show that this grammatical data is very stable. (Only 131 out of 4748 Polish words have had their inflection data corrected.) We also explain Zawilinski's key features and discuss how it can be used to simplify the development of additional grammar-based analyses. 0 2
