What Is This

This is a grammatical analyser for Ojibwe, or Chippewa.

It contains some 750 nouns and verbs, and a morphological component covering their basic inflection pattern.

The analyser is thus still in an experimental phase.

The language

Ojibwe is an Algonquin language spoken in Canada and the United States. There are dialect differences within the language. The principal source of our analyser presents the Minnesota dialect, using the Double Vowel, or so-called Fiero system. This system is characterised by marking vowel length by writing double vowel symbols.

The structure of the source file catalogue is the same for all the languages, it is documented here.

These pages document how to build the parsers. If you want to know how to use them on the command line, read the How to use the morphological parsers page.
