Hi, I am Vikrant Goyal, a 3rd yr undergraduate from IIIT Hyderabad, India. I have introduced myself on the CLTK's mailing list. I am an opensource enthusiast and would like to contribute in GSoC 2018. Before starting with anything. I just want to confirm that whether Hindi and Punjabi are in the consideration of CLTK. I would like to contribute or adding corpora in this language domain. If not then should I proceed with the intergrating moses with the CLTK project as I am familiar with hindi-english MT. Thanks :smile:

Thank you @inishchith . Just like Nishchith says, please start with the beginners' exercise and include that in your application questions to us. It is important that you have used our software a little before proposing how to improve it :)

Hello everyone!

I am Eleftheria, a freshman in the Mathematics Department of Aristotle University, Greece. Despite having learned beyond the basics of NLP, I am well aware that there is virtually endless reading I have to do before considering myself half-decent at it. Additionally, although I have developed various scripts throughout the years, they have all been for either personal use or distributed among friends. Unfortunately I never felt confident enough to dabble in OS before, so this whole experience is a bit out of my comfort zone.
As someone interested in computational linguistics, what initially drew me to your projects was the core idea. I am advanced in Ancient Greek and I take immense pleasure in reading the original texts (Aristotle being a favourite of mine). I also have some exposure in Latin and Middle High German, but wouldn't consider myself competent at either.
Currently playing around with cltk and going through the documentation. Looking forward to contributing :)
