SemSms - Semantic Database for Skolt Sami

This SQLite database contains Skolt Sami lemmas and their frequencies in a big corpus. The lemmas are linked to each other based on the syntactic relations they have had in the corpus. Also, the frequency of a syntactic relation between two words is recorded. This means that it is possible to see how frequently for example the word for a dog has appeared with a subject relation with the verb for bark.

These database is translated from SemFi by using Giellatekno XML dictionaries.

An easy programmatic interface is provided in UralicNLP:,-SemUr)
