Projects

Below are the projects that I am currently maintaining apart from my PhD.

Linguistic Projects

Konkanverter : Konkani Statistical Machine Transliteration Engine

Konkanverter3Konkanverter is a finite state transducer based transliteration engine that performs statistical machine transliteration between three different scripts (Devanagari, Kannada & Roman) used to write the Konkani language. The statistical machine transliteration system consists of cascading finite state transducers combining both rule-based and statistical approaches.

Avalokitam : Tamil Prosody Analyzer

AvalokitesvaraAvalokitam is an open source prosody analyzer for the Tamil Language. It constructs a parse tree of the input text based on the prosodic syllable patterns. Based on this parse tree, the input verses are analyzed for all the six basic elements of Tamil prosody: eḻuttu (Letter), acai (Metreme), cīr (Metrical Foot), taḷai (Linkage), aṭi (Metrical Line) & toṭai (Ornamenation). The meter of the verse is then recognized by matching the elements with the elaborate and complex rules of Tamil prosody.

You can access the project from here. The source code is available at Github.

Font Projects

Adinatha – Tamil Brahmi Font

Adinatha is a Unicode font for the ancient Tamil Brahmi script. Adinatha is based on the existing Brahmi encoding and largely draws upon Dr Iravatham Mahadevan’s Early Tamil Epigraphy for the shapes of the glyphs.The font contains both OpenType & Graphite table and hence properly renders in a wide variety of systems.
