Abstract

The Thai Learning System (TLS) is designed to help learners acquire the Thai word order system. TLS facilitates the lessons on the Web using HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Perl programming which interfaces with Natural Language Processing (NLP) by means of Prolog. The system introduces an easily understandable presentation of a sentence structure by indicating syntactic trees and case grammar principles. Behind TLS, Prolog analyzes affirmative sentences with Thai phrase structure rules and a computational lexicon, and Perl programming transforms the Prolog results back into a user interface display. The system contains interactive features, pictures, sounds, and informative feedback. Questionnaires and factor analysis were used to evaluate the system. The results of the evaluation showed that TLS has an effective user interface and handles learners' input efficiently.
