Kartu-Verbs: A Semantic Web Base of Inflected Verb Forms for the Georgian Language

Abstract : The Georgian language has a complex verbal system, both agglutinative and inflectional, with many exceptions. It is still a controversial issue to determine which lemmas should represent a verb in dictionaries. Verb tables help neophytes to track lemmas starting from inflected forms but if in paper documents they are tedious and error-prone to browse. We propose Kartu-Verbs, a Semantic Web base of inflected Georgian verb forms. For a given verb, all inflected forms are present. Knowledge can easily be traversed in all directions: from Georgian to French and English; from an inflected form to a masdar, and conversely from a masdar to any inflected form; from component(s) to forms and from a form to its components. Users can easily retrieve the lemmas that are relevant to access their preferred dictionary. Kartu-Verbs can be seen as a front-end to any Georgian dictionary, thus bypassing the lemmatization issues. This report illustrates in detail how to use Kartu-Verbs and give some indications about how the base is built. Our base, in its current state, is already a successful proof of concept. It has proven helpful to learn about Georgian verbs.
