I want to participate in GSOC this summer.I have done basic tutorials and excercises. I have read the blog http://cltk.org/blog/2018/12/30/under-resourced-languages-cltk.html and I have few queries - 1. Is it necessary to add more datasets or we can work with the old datasets(like greek and latin ) and add new algorithms or make the older ones more effective ? 2. Can I work on a Language like greek/Latin/Older versions of Sanskrit/Hindi for that matter to apply NLP algorithms and do things like POS Tagging, Translation and other stuff ? 3. If I have the answer to 6 questions that the blog asks, where do i put forward those to you ?

@/all read our blog post (and the project page has been updated, too)
This year, we do NOT want small contributions. We want you to focus on making very good project proposals, instead.

@ashish-ratn

we can work with the old datasets(like greek and latin

Of course, reuse is fine, but likely we don't have nearly enough.

Think about the tasks you want to accomplish. And remember, you must know a language somewhat well if you want to work on it.

@Erikishiru We prefer that you not give the other students directions.
