( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Oh yeah.. Lingua::EN.. well now I feel dumb, maybe I wasn't searching for specifics. Still reading about these modules, I'm inspired to help out. I had a few ideas as far as word comparison. I'm not academically qualified as a linguist, but, there seems to be two different type of word roots: ones that are in our common lexicon and ones that are deeper into the etymological roots of the language.

Now how to find the roots without going too deep and how to distinguish between combining forms and regular suffixes/prefixes is the problem, since it isn't an exact science (at least not in it's simplest form)... quasi- is a combining form, not a prefix; mis- and anti- are prefixes. Then there are noun and verb combining forms vs. suffixes.

What a mess, who designed this language anyway? Gee, thanks a lot human history.. for providing the clean cut and well thought out natural languages that we have today. Talk about taking a legacy to the extreme! Sheesh. :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
