Abstract

The development of HLT tools inevitably involves the need for language resources. However, only a handful number of languages possesses such resources. This paper presents the development of HLT tools for the African language Naija (Nigerian Pidgin), spoken in Nigeria. Particularly, this paper is focusing on developing language resources for a tokenizer, an automatic speech system for predicting the pronunciation of the words and their segmentation. The newly created resources are integrated into SPPAS software tool and distributed under the terms of public licenses.
