Initial Evaluation of Ambiguity

After running the disambiguation test script, my ambiguity was ~1.05322763306908267271. But, I decided to find other words that had more interesting ambiguous forms rather than pursue the negligible ambiguity already in my corpus.

Ambiguity

My ambiguous words were bo; to row, fruit (n) and va; to open one's mouth, not. My sentences with ambiguity were:

  • Yau bo va
    I don't row
    "<yau>"
    "yau" prn p1 sg
    "<bo>"
    "bo" v
    ; "bo" n REMOVE:26
    "<va>"
    "va" neg
    ; "va" v REMOVE:29
  • Yau va va
    I don't open my mouth
    "<yau>"
    "yau" prn p1 sg
    "<va>"
    "va" v
    ; "va" neg REMOVE:47
    "<va>"
    "va" neg
    ; "va" v REMOVE:29
  • Yane bo
    I eat fruit
    "<yau>"
    "yau" prn p1 sg
    "<bo>"
    "bo" n
    ; "bo" v REMOVE:29

I should also note that none of these were in my corpus; I had to construct all of them.

Final Assessment of Ambiguity

After running the disambiguation test script, my ambiguity was ~1.03737259343148357871
