TitleA Simple Platform for Defining Idiom Variation Matching Rules
AbstractIn this demonstration, we present a system which enables people who are learning languages to define idiom variation matching rules, with special reference to variations created by insertion. The system is fully operational, currently providing Japanese idiom entries taken from Japanese-English and Japanese-German dictionaries, and is used by both graduate and undergraduate university students who are studying Japanese and Japanese native speakers.
