Grammatical Lexicon of Warsaw Urban Proper Names




The Grammatical Lexicon of Warsaw Urban Proper Names (SAWA - Słownik elektroniczny nAzewnictwa WArszawy) is an electronic lexicon containing about 9,000 proper names of places related to the Warsaw transportation system, i.e. names of streets, squares, monuments, buildings, bus, tram and subway stops, etc., as well as names of persons to whom some objects (notably streets) are dedicated. Previous names (notably those used before 1989) are also included. Their morphosyntax is described by over 450 graph-based inflection paradigms, which allow an automatic generation of over 300,000 inflectional and syntactic variants. It has been developed within a French-Polish Polonium project and within nationally funded Polish project.
