This project aims at making a tentative database on Persian literature and culture with computer assistance.
For this purpose the Persian Epic '**********' _*is o _*amin) comprising 8908 couplets was chosen as material covering the fields of the life, customs, education, faith and thought of Iranian women. Each couplet of the Epic was fed into a personal computer (PC) for data processing.
To achieve the project, some programs were developed for printing out Persian script, making Persian script font, sorting extracted words (tokens) according to Persian alphabetical order, finding the types with their frequencies, etc.
The report of this project to be submitted consists of three parts. The contents of each part are as follows:
E. Okada : Database on Persian Literature and Culture, Covering the Fields of the Life and Thought of Women in Iranian Area
K. Machida : Machine Processing of Specific Script and Language --- Case study on Persian Script and Language ---
Type List with Frequency
Frequency List of the Types
Text of '********** ' ( _*is o _*amin)
The use of all the results of this project, i. e. database in the form of ASCII file and programs for data processing, is open to every researcher on condition that the copyright of these products would not be infringed.
