hfst-guessify [OPTIONS...] [INFILE]


Compile a morphological analyzer into a guesser and generator.

Common options:

Print help message
Print version info
Print verbosely while processing
Only print fatal erros and requested output
Alias of --quiet

Input/Output options:

Read input transducer from INFILE
Write output transducer to OUTFILE

Guesser options:

Give penalty for skipping one symbol of input (1.0 by default).
When compiling the guesser, do not compile a model form generator.

All analyses in the morphological analyzer should have the form: w o r d f o r m POS [GUESS_CATEGORY=CLASS] X Y Z ... where POS is the part-of-speech tag, [GUESS_CATEGORY=CLASS] is an inflectional category marker and X, Y and Z are inflectional markers. The form of the inflectional category marker is fixed. CLASS can be any string, which doesn't contain "]".

Using the option -d will reduce the size of the guesser file by approximately half, but may substantially increase the load time of the guesser when generating model forms. If you only need to guess analyses of unknown word forms, -d has no effect on load time.

If OUTFILE or INFILE is missing or -, standard streams will be used.
