Formalization of the Wolof with Nooj: Implementation on the Wolof Dictionary

Authors: Haby Diallo, Alex Corenthin, Claude Lishou

This paper introduces the NooJ module for the Wolof language and the implemented electronic dictionary. the linguistic resources used are common usage dictionaries including Arame Fall’s and Jean Léopold Diouf’s dictionaries, as well as the Wolof lexicon available at CLAD (Centre de linguistique Appliquée de Dakar). The present work will first focus on the socio-linguistic situation of the Wolof language while describing its alphabet before, in a second part, introducing the complex morphology of this language. The third part will be devoted to explaining how the core of the dictionary has been constructed and describing the flexional and derivation rules used to implement it in NooJ. Finally, the first results achieved with NooJ will be presented.
