Bulgarian Compound Verb Forms


Overview of Data Categories

In constructing a grammar for recognizing compound verb forms automatically, the initial challenge is to identify the boundaries and components of linguistic entities representing the patterns to be recognized. Decision-making in this process is influenced by language-specific characteristics, shallow parsing strategies integrated into text corpus processing, and the interface between segments identified through shallow parsing and deeper linguistic analysis in subsequent treebank creation stages A Unified Approach.

Tense, Mood, and Voice Paradigm of Bulgarian Verbs

Bulgarian verbs exhibit a complex tense, mood, and voice paradigm, encompassing both simplex (synthetic) inflected forms and complex (analytic) forms. Complex forms typically involve a non-finite form of the full-content verb and one or more auxiliaries, with variations and omissions in some cases. Traditionally, Bulgarian is recognized to have nine tenses and four moods, including the less common narrated (not-witness) mood. Passive voice is expressed through a form comprising auxiliary verbs and the passive participle of full-content verbs (excluding reflexive pronominal forms in the current model). Despite differing theoretical perspectives on the number and types of tenses, moods, and voices in Bulgarian, the computational linguist faces the challenge of dealing with a variety of forms Tours Bulgaria.
