hfst-guess(1) =Use a guesser (and generator) to guess analyses or inflectional


hfst-guess [OPTIONS...] [INFILE]


Use a guesser (and generator) to guess analyses or inflectional paradigms of unknown words.

Common options:

-h, --help
Print help message
-V, --version
Print version info
-v, --verbose
Print verbosely while processing
-q, --quiet
Only print fatal erros and requested output
-s, --silent
Alias of --quiet

Input/Output options:

-i, --input=INFILE
Read input transducer from INFILE
-o, --output=OUTFILE
Write output transducer to OUTFILE

Guesser options:

-f, --model-form-filename
Inflectional information for generated model forms is read from this file.
-n, --max-number-of-guesses
Maximal number of analysis per word form (5 by default).
-m --max-number-of-forms
Maximal number of generated model forms per guess (2 by default).
-g --generate-threshold
Generate only forms whose weight is better than the weight of the of the best form plus this threshold. (50 by default).

The guesser and generator should be constructed using the tool hfst-guessify, which can compile a guesser and generator from a morphological analyzer. hfst-guessify packages the guesser and generator in the same fst-file.

If option -f is used, but a generator has not been compiled with the guesser, a generator will be compiled, which will increase load time.

If OUTFILE or INFILE is missing or -, standard streams will be used.
