This handout shows a parallel corpus between two alien languages. You’ll use this data to translate some alien words and sentences.

  1. Try to draw lines between the words that are translations of each other. Start out by finding words that occur in multiple source sentences, like “ghirok”, and see if you can find words that appear in all of the corresponding target sentences. Do you notice any patterns in how the words translate? Do you think that the prefix “ok-“ corresponds to something? You do not have to turn anything in for this step.
