An Gramadóir
Grammar checking engine geared toward minority languages

An Gramadóir is intended as a platform for the development of sophisticated natural language processing tools for languages with limited computational resources. It is currently implemented for the Irish language (Gaeilge); this is, to the best of my knowledge, the first grammar checker developed for any minority language. Ports for Afrikaans, Cornish, Esperanto, Walloon, and Welsh are currently underway. The grammar checker can be called from emacs, vim, or OpenOffice. Various components of the engine can be bootstrapped using statistical methods based on text corpora.
