Language Apps

Ever since I can remember, the links between machine and human language have fascinated me. I have a thing for rules, which is one reasons languages – particularly heavily inflected ones! – appeal to me.

Most recently, I’ve been experimenting with programmatic morphology, or getting computers to mimic the rules for word-building in language. By mirroring the rules of the verb system, you can create a ‘declension engine’ that has lots of applications in language learning. As a result, I’ve created a set of verb reference / practice apps for iOS, which you can download using the links below.

I hope you find them useful!

As I continue to dabble and experiment with different languages and digital platforms, this list will hopefully grow.

Alternatively, if you prefer video content, check out another of my projects on this site: Spanish Grammar Bites, a set of whiteboard-style videos for students.
