Step 1: Prerequisites for building a lexical model

To prepare a lexical model based on a word list, we will need a few things:

  • Install Keyman Developer 12.0 or greater (Windows only)
  • A list of words in your language, stored in an spreadsheet, in dictionary-making software or, other means.


Currently, lexical models work better with languages that use regular spaces as word boundaries. For complex scripts such as Khmer, Thai, Lao, etc, a pre-processing is required before getting it to work, i.e. word segmentation has to be determined and/or configured. See the advanced topic on making a custom word breaker.
This will be addressed in a future feature.
