ALLEX - African Languages Lexicon Project

Participants Herbert Chimhundu, Pernilla Danielsson, Martin Gellerstam, Oddrun Grønvik, Jouni Maho, Christian Emil Ore, Daniel Ridings, and others

The African Languages Lexicon Project (ALLEX) was until 1999 a joint research project between the Universities of Zimbabwe, Oslo and Göteborg, with the aim of producing monolingual corpus-based dictionaries for Zimbabwean languages. Developing lexicographical methods for doing so was another important goal. A monolingual Shona dictionary, Duramazwi Rechishona, appeared in 1996, and a similar Sindebele dictionary will appear during the course of 2000.

The corpora can be viewed at LexiLogik AB (formerly GU Språk & Data AB). See under "Demonstrations".

In 1999, the activities of ALLEX were taken over by ALRI (African Languages Research Institute), located at the University of Zimbabwe.
