quality 3. Easy Thorough checkup of bn-en morphological analyser While the current bn-en morphological analyser has a pretty good coverage, it should have been higher.

Using lt-expand it's possible to generate all forms of the verbs, then manually check these and using another script (already in the pair) rebuild the analyser file. This checking will require a native speaker/expert on Bengali language 2–4 Abu Zaher
