feature structures for numbers

Further to our discussions on numbers, I have added the following to feature_system.xml

1) wordType numberStem. So ECH will add this <fs> to the number stems 1-10.

<fs>
<f name="numberStem">
<binary value="true"/>
</f>
</fs>

2) countingType "ten"

I have also added the following <fs> to lexical suffix "akst-2", so ECH can use this morpheme for marking up the numbers 30, 40 ... 90.

<fs>
<f name="baseType">
<symbol value="affix"/>
</f>
<f name="positionType">
<symbol value="suffix"/>
</f>
<f name="affixType">
<symbol value="derivational"/>
</f>
<f name="derivationalType">
<symbol value="lexical"/>
<symbol value="counting"/>
</f>
<f name="countingType">
<symbol value="ten"/>
</f>
</fs>

MDH will then search for entries with this <fs> to build a test column for the table of numerical expressions. We can subsequently add more countingType values to the feature system, and to the entries for the appropriate lexical suffixes with classifier functions, and generate more columns for the table.

This is an XML dictionary project based primarily on the materials compiled by the late M. Dale Kinkade during fifteen years of work in the 1960’s and 1970’s with more than a dozen native speakers of the language, but it also includes materials compiled by Ewa Czaykowska-Higgins in the early 1990’s.
