Hindi Resource Grammar Released

Hi All,

We are happy to release the first version of our Hindi GF resource grammar, and an improved version of the Urdu resource grammar.

Hindi is very similar to Urdu. Indeed they are in many ways different registers of one language: Hindustani, to use an old name. Modern Urdu and Hindi differ mostly in the advanced or recent parts of the lexicon. Urdu evolved from an old Delhi dialect with copious borrowing from Persian and some from Arabic, and is written in a Perso-Arabic alphabet. Hindi, a more recent evolution from Hindustani, has borrowed much more from Sanskrit.

Sindhi Resource Grammar Released

We are happy to release the Sindhi Resource Grammar. It is 5th Indo-Iranian language added in the GF resource grammar library (Others are Urdu, Punjabi, Persian, and Nepali). The development took almost 6 months, and was developed as a Master thesis project. Sindhi belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-Iranian family. It is widely spoken in Pakistan and India. In Pakistan it is the official language of Sindh (province of Pakistan), and in India it one of the scheduled languages officially recognized by federal government of India.

Phrasebook and MGL are now available for Russian

Phrasebook and Mathematical Grammar Library feature support for Russian now. This work has identified some shortcomings in the Russian resource grammar, so in order to build the new versions, the development branch of GF resource grammars has to be installed.

The known issues in these two applications include word order in questions and agreement in cardinal determiners.
