Calomo is a hyphenator for Afrikaans, which can be implemented in any NLP system. It takes as input a string, and produces as output an analysed string, without any tags. For example, the string "hondehokdak" ('dog house roof') will be analysed as "hon-de-hok-dak", where the hyphen indicates syllable boundaries on an orthographic level. Calomo is a C5 classifier, trained on data consisting of circa 40,000 words. The resulting decision tree and cases can be converted to C code by means of a script written by M.M. van Zaanen. This C code can then be implemented in any other system.
