TL;DR: This work addresses the reverse problem: given a foreign name or loanword in Arabic text, the authors want to recover the original in Roman script, and presents results and examples of use in an Arabic-to-English machine translator.
Abstract: It is challenging to translate names and technical terms from English into Arabic. Translation is usually done phonetically: different alphabets and sound inventories force various compromises. For example, Peter Streams may come out as [Abstract contained text which could not be captured.] bytr strymz. This process is called transliteration. We address here the reverse problem: given a foreign name or loanword in Arabic text, we want to recover the original in Roman script. For example, an input like [Abstract contained text which could not be captured.] bytr strymz should yield an output like Peter Streams. Arabic presents special challenges due to unwritten vowels and phonetic-context effects. We present results and examples of use in an Arabic-to-English machine translator.

TL;DR: The HASOC track as mentioned in this paper is dedicated to evaluate technology for finding offensive language and hate speech, which has attracted much interest and over 40 research groups have participated as well as described their approaches in papers.
Abstract: This paper presents the HASOC track and its two parts. HASOC is dedicated to evaluate technology for finding Offensive Language and Hate Speech. HASOC is creating test collections for languages with few resources and English for comparison. The first track within HASOC has continued work from 2019 and provided a testbed of Twitter posts for Hindi, German and English. The second track within HASOC has created test resources for Tamil and Malayalam in native and Latin script. Posts were extracted mainly from Youtube and Twitter. Both tracks have attracted much interest and over 40 research groups have participated as well as described their approaches in papers. In this overview, we present the tasks, the data and the main results.

TL;DR: The most comprehensive and up-to-date account in any language of the history of Latin script was given by the greatest living authority on medieval palaeography as discussed by the authors, who also provided a detailed account of the role of the book in cultural history from antiquity to the Renaissance.
Abstract: This work, by the greatest living authority on medieval palaeography, offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date account in any language of the history of Latin script. It also contains a detailed account of the role of the book in cultural history from antiquity to the Renaissance, which outlines the history of book illumination. Designed as a textbook, it contains a full and updated bibliography. Because the volume sets the development of Latin script in its cultural context, it also provides an unrivalled introduction to the nature of medieval Latin culture. It will be used extensively in the teaching of latin palaeography, and is unlikely to be superseded.

TL;DR: A novel tweet dataset, titled Hindi- English Offensive Tweet (HEOT) dataset, consisting of tweets in Hindi-English code switched language split into three classes: non-offensive, abusive and hate-speech is introduced.
Abstract: The exponential rise of social media websites like Twitter, Facebook and Reddit in linguistically diverse geographical regions has led to hybridization of popular native languages with English in an effort to ease communication. The paper focuses on the classification of offensive tweets written in Hinglish language, which is a portmanteau of the Indic language Hindi with the Roman script. The paper introduces a novel tweet dataset, titled Hindi-English Offensive Tweet (HEOT) dataset, consisting of tweets in Hindi-English code switched language split into three classes: non-offensive, abusive and hate-speech. Further, we approach the problem of classification of the tweets in HEOT dataset using transfer learning wherein the proposed model employing Convolutional Neural Networks is pre-trained on tweets in English followed by retraining on Hinglish tweets.
