To correctly discern the lemma and the morphology so as to be translated correctly into the target language, Apertium uses Constraint Grammar (CG). Currently Uyghur has about 45 CG rules for disambiguation.
To determine in which context which translation of a given lemma would be selected, lexical selection is employed.
