Initial Evaluation of Ambiguity

  • Our initial ambiguity = 1.06 = 4169/3932
  • Some examples:
    • mran<v><iv><p1><pl><inc> ra<pr>/ra<cnjsub> vanda<n> ↔ komran ra vanda # We walk along the seaside
    • saroi<n>+i<prn><pers><p3><sg><spc> orn<v><tv><p3><sg> si<prn><pers><p3><pl><an><spc>+ya<det><dem> inm<v><tv><p3><an> monda<adv> ra<pr>/ra<cnjsub> mar<v><iv><p3><pl><an> ↔ saroiya dorn siya, siya sinm monda ra simar # The whale ate some, others drank (river water) only until they died.
  • We found ambiguity between the possessive inalienable noun 'nari' (tooth 1/3sg) and 'nari' meaning will, to indicate some sort of future tense.
    • There is a lack of examples and documentation on these forms, particularly the tense form, which was unmentioned in our comprehensive grammar. We have yet to determine a way to disambiguate these words grammatically.

Final Evaluation of Ambiguity

  • Final ambiguity = 1.058 = 4030/4267
