Abstract

We release a Python module containing several tools to build analogical grids from words contained in a corpus. The module implements several previously presented algorithms. The tools are language-independent. This permits their use with any language and any writing system. We hope that the tools will ease research in morphology by allowing researchers to automatically obtain structured representations of the vocabulary contained in corpora or linguistic data. We also release analogical grids built on the vocabularies contained in 1,000 corresponding lines of the 11 different language versions of the Europarl corpus v.3. The grids were built on N-grams of different lengths, from words to 6-grams. We hope that the use of structured parallel data will foster research in comparative linguistics.
