For this purpose vowel successions within words are statistically analyzed and visualized in a quadratic matrix whose rows and columns are ordered according to their distribution in the text, with more similar vowels occurring closer together. The method has been tested on the basis of Bible corpora in a variety of languages including well-known harmonic languages such as Turkish, Hungarian and Finnish as well as non-harmonic languages.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Visualizing vowel harmony</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Plank, Frans</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Keim, Daniel</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-07-20T07:46:02Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Linguistic issues in language technology ; 4 (2010), 2. - pp. 1-33</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
