     lt-proc — lexical processor for Apertium


     lt-proc [-a | -b | -o | -c | -d | -e | -g | -h | -p | -s | -t | -v | -h | -z | -w] [-W]
             [-N -N] [-L -N] [-i icx_file] fst_file [input_file [output_file]]


     lt-proc is the application responsible for providing the four lexical processing

        morphological analyser (option -a)

        lexical transfer (option -n)

        morphological generator (option -g)

        post-generator (option -p)

     It accomplishes these tasks by reading binary files containing a compact and efficient
     representation of dictionaries (a class of finite-state transducers called augmented letter
     transducers).  These files are generated by lt-comp(1).

     It is worth mentioning that some characters (‘[’, ‘]’, ‘$’, ‘^’, ‘/’, ‘+’) are special chars
     used for format and encapsulation.  They should be escaped if they have to be used
     literally, for instance: ‘[’...‘]’ are ignored and the format of a linefeed is ‘^...$’.


     -a, --analysis
             Tokenizes the text in surface forms (lexical units as they appear in texts) and
             delivers, for each surface form, one or more lexical forms consisting of lemma,
             lexical category and morphological inflection information.  Tokenization is not
             straightforward due to the existence, on the one hand, of contractions, and, on the
             other hand, of multi-word lexical units.  For contractions, the system reads in a
             single surface form and delivers the corresponding sequence of lexical forms.
             Multi-word surface forms are analysed in a left-to-right, longest-match fashion.
             Multi-word surface forms may be invariable (such as a multi-word preposition or
             conjunction) or inflected (for example, in es, “echaban de menos”, “they missed”, is
             a form of the imperfect indicative tense of the verb “echar de menos”, “to miss”).
             Limited support for some kinds of discontinuous multi-word units is also available.
             Single-word surface forms analysis produces output like the one in these examples:

             “cantar” → “^cantar/cantar<vblex><inf>$” or “daba” →

     -b, --bilingual
             Does lexical transference, attaching queues of morphological symbols not specified
             in the dictionaries.  As the analysis mode, supports multiple lexical forms in the
             target language for a given lexical form in the source language.  Works typically
             with the output of apertium-pretransfer(1).

     -o, --surf-bilingual
             As with -b, but takes input from apertium-tagger(1) -p, with surface forms, and if
             the lexical form is not found in the bilingual dictionary, it outputs the surface
             form of the word.

     -c, --case-sensitive
             Use the literal case of the incoming characters

     -d, --debugged-gen
             Morphological generation with all the stuff

     -e, --decompose-compounds
             Try to treat unknown words as compounds, and decompose them.

     -w, --dictionary-case
             Use the case information contained in the lexicon, instead of the surface case (only
             applied in analysis mode).

     -g, --generation
             Delivers a target-language surface form for each target-language lexical form, by
             suitably inflecting it.

     -n, --non-marked-gen
             Morphological generation (like -g) but without unknown word marks (asterisk ‘*’).

     -b, --tagged-gen
             Morphological generation (like -g) but retaining part-of-speech tags.

     -p, --post-generation
             Performs orthographical operations such as contractions and apostrophations.  The
             post-generator is usually dormant (just copies the input to the output) until a
             special alarm symbol contained in some target-language surface forms wakes it up to
             perform a particular string transformation if necessary; then it goes back to sleep.

     -s, --sao
             Input processing is in orthoepikon (previously sao) annotation system format:

     -t, --transliteration
             Apply a transliteration dictionary

     -i icx_file, --ignored-chars icx_file
             Ignores characters specified in the file icx_file

     -z, --null-flush
             Flush output on the null character

     -C, --careful-case
             Use dictionary case if present, else surface

     -N, --analyses
             Output no more than N analyses (if the transducer is weighted, the N best analyses)

     -L, --weight-classes
             Output no more than N best weight classes (where analyses with equal weight
             constitute a class)

     -W, --show-weights
             Print final analysis weights (if any)

     -v, --version
             Display the version number.

     -h, --help
             Display this help.
