காதல் -> தவம் ?

எப்படி “காதல்” என்ற சொல்லை, ஓர் எழுத்து மாற்றத்தினால் மட்டுமே, “தவம்” என்று மாற்றுவது ?

காதல்
கானல்
காறல்
கால்
காழ்
சீழ்
சீவ
சீவம்
சைவம்
தவம்

இதனை எப்படி கண்டடைந்தோம் ?. இதனை எப்படி கணினிமயமாக்கலாம் ?

விரைவில்.

Thanks to kind arrangements of friends in Chennai Python, and open-tamil community I had an opportunity to make a presentation on Open-Tamil and Ezhil-Lang projects, and completion. Talk was well received, and delivered in unique Tamil mixed with English due to comfort of being in Chennai only!

open-tamil -conference articles (2014, ’16, ’17)

Thanks to our co-authors and open-tamil collaborators [Shrinivasan, Arulalan, Sathia Narayanan, among others], we were able to submit 3 articles to INFITT conferences in 2014, 2016, and 2017 respectively.

This year too with some luck we hope to make it to the TIC 2018. We are in process of drafting another article for upcoming 2018 Tamil Internet Conference in Coimbatore, India, to report additional developments from our team. We will be having a somewhat larger author list to properly acknowledge contributors – old and new.

At this time for our own review, we recollect the prior three research articles published about open-tamil (in chronological order) they are:

  1. “Open-Tamil text processing tools,” (2014) Tamil Internet Conference at Puducherry, India : here (Aug, 2014)
  2. “Developments in Open-Tamil library,” (2016) Tamil Internet Conference at Dindugul, India : here (2016)
  3. “Tamil open-source landscape: opportunities and challenges,” (2017) Tamil Internet Conference, UT-Scarborough, Toronto, Canada : here (June, 2017)

I’m happy to announce Open-Tamil 0.7 release, today 23rd March, 2018. Open-Tamil is distributed under MIT license, and available for Python 2.6, 2.7, 3+ and PyPy platforms, via the Python Package index at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Open-Tamil/0.7

You can install the package via ‘$ pip install –upgrade open-tamil’ command issued in your console.

Following updates are made to the Python package:

  1. Series of command line tools will be installed into your Python (for Windows) or local/bin directory (for Linux) with this release. The command line tools are,

     

1. tamilphonetic – convert EN input to Tamil text

2. tamilwordfilter – filter Tamil input only from all input text data

3. tamilurlfilter – filter Tamil text from the input website data

4. tamiltscii2utf8 – convert encoding from TSCII to UTF-8 for input file

5. tamilwordgrid – generate a crossword from Tamil input text and write to output.html file

6. tamilwordcount – like UNIX wc program but for Tamil

  1. Transliteration package updates: Reverse transliteration functions is added; Univ of Madras scheme support is added.
  2. Tamil package: added text summarizer tool via module ‘tamil.utils.SummaryTool’
  3. Solthiruthi package updates: To do spell checking reasonable times and ability to identify and correct many classes of errors are added.
  4. Bug fixes for issues in get_letters(), tamil.numeral, added capability for generating string version of numerals in Tamil [previously only numeric version was supported]

In addition to the package, a web interface was developed for Open-Tamil in Django hosted at http://tamilpesu.us for demonstrating some of our capabilities.

We like to thank all our contributors in general, and in particular those members who contributed new code or bug fixes going into this release.

Previous release was v0.67 on Aug 23rd, 2017 and v0.65 was released on Oct 22nd 2016. Please share the word, and send us any bugs, feature requests or feedback via our github page https://github.com/Ezhil-Language-Foundation/open-tamil

Open-Tamil user commands

Lot of times we have felt the problem with open-tamil : it has many utilities, but none of them are usually available as functions or commands out of the box. It has very much been a developer tool, and not a user or informed-layperson tool.

A quick fix is to add the example Python scripts to the default install paths along with open-tamil installation [which is still simple as ‘$ pip install –upgrade open-tamil‘].

1. tamilphonetic - convert EN input to Tamil text
2. tamilwordfilter - filter Tamil input only from all input text data
3. tamilurlfilter - filter Tamil text from the input website data
4. tamiltscii2utf8 - convert encoding from TSCII to UTF-8 for input file
5. tamilwordgrid - generate a crossword from Tamil input text and write to output.html file
6. tamilwordcount - like UNIX wc program but for Tamil

All these functions will be made available in version 0.7 of open-tamil to be released soon. Currently these functions have landed in the development branch through the commit 02810461bef216df56b10ebf09818b94dfc75574

The next step should be to really bundle these tools into a binary executable for various platforms. Also to note, the function tamilwordcount was contributed by a new member to the Open-Tamil group, Mr. Surendhar. Thanks much, and welcome!

open-tamil on web

Today, you are welcome to play with open-tamil API via web at http://tamilpesu.us

Generating multiplication tables via Open-Tamil APIs’: http://tamilpesu.us/vaypaadu/

This is collective work of our team underlying the website (written in Django+Python) highlighting various aspects of open-tamil like transliteration, numeral generation, encoding converters, spell checker among other things. At this time I hope to keep the website running through most of this year, and add features as git-repo https://github.com/Ezhil-Language-Foundation/open-tamil gets updated.

Thanks to Mr. Syed Abuthahir, many months ago, in winter of 2017, he has developed an interface for open-tamil on the web and shared with us under GNU Affero GPL terms. Later, we is added as part of main open-tamil as well.

Open-Tamil moves forward; come join us!

Ezhil, Open-Tamil conference articles – 2017

One of major achievements of last year has been collecting inputs from our team and writing up two important papers – one for historical review and other for collective call to action on great opportunity that is Tamil open-source software.

Acknowledgements

We also take time to thank all co-authors who have pulled together their efforts at short notice to make these research works happen! Together these two papers represent a value of tens of thousands of Indian rupees, or more in the making (going by estimates of other Tamil software foundations).

We also thank conference organizers for partial travel grant toward making this presentation happen. Thank you!

Conference Articles – 2017

Ezhil, Open-Tamil conference articles – 2017 presented at Tamil Internet Conference, August, 2017, in Toronto, Canada. Both the papers were well received and good academic and development points were debated at the forum.

  1. Ezhil – எழில் மொழி பொது பயன்பாட்டிற்கும், வெளியீடு நோக்கிய சவால்களும்
    • This paper summarizes the path taken by Ezhil from inception toward delivering a fully installable product on Windows 64/32bit, Linux (Unbutnu, Fedora) systems, and offers a meditation on how students and teachers may adopt this product, and future pathways.
    • Presentation slides are here on slideshare.
  2. Open-Tamil / Open Source in Tamil – Tamil Open-Source Landscape – Opportunities and Challenges_MA_2017_final 
    • Some important contributions of this paper show collective interest in Tamil open-source which outpaces the other languages with larger speaking-population. This is a key indicator to develop better pathways to bring new developers and train them into developing Tamil software
    • GitHub Tamil language repositories

      GitHub Tamil language repositories compared with other languages, as measure of software developers interest.

    • Presentation slides are at slide-share
