This aim of this project was improving the following language pairs of Apertium: tur->uig, uzb->tur, kir->tur, tat->tur.


My commits can be found [here]. You can also download my work as a [ zip file].


Transfer rules were written for tur->uig and uzb->tur, using Regression Tests. They can be found here: Uighur and Uzbek.

Corpora and Coverage

Corpus Words Coverage


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.

Lexical Selection

To determine in which context which translation of a given lemma would be selected, lexical selection is employed. Currently uig-tur has 35 lexsel rules.
