Apertium developers working on Turkic languages have planned to hold at least one meeting during LREC to discuss the following issues, among others:

  • How to deal with semi-recursive structures, such as morphemes that attatch to subst and derive subst,, e.g. <loc><attr> and <px>
  • How to deal with morphemes which change case of first letter when suffix is added,
  • How to deal with phonological processes like vowel harmony on numerals and abbreviations,
  • How to deal with derivations which are too productive to ignore -LIK/-LI
  • If we're not tired after all that: non-finite verb forms
  • Website for Türkic
  • Testvoc.
  • etc.
