Open-source code base

All our software applications are based on open-source code developed by ourselves, our Partners, and others, accessible on Github: – most important of these is morphodict, our platform for morphologically intelligent/enhanced on-line dictionaries:, which is inspired on our Norwegian Giellatekno and Divvun partners’ Neahttadigisanit dictionaries within their GiellaLT infrastructure.

nêhiyawêwin (Plains Cree)

ALTLab tools for Plains Cree are being developed together with our technological partners, the Giellatekno and Divvun teams at the University of Tromsø. Please check out these tools via the links below:


An intelligent Plains Cree — English dictionary  that uses a computational FST model to search with inflected forms of Plains Cree Words, and generate word form declensions/conjugations (paradigms). It features combined content from: 1) Dr. Arok Wolvengrey’s dictionary nêhiyawêwin : itwêwina / Cree : Words, 2) the Maskwacîs Cree Dictionary, and 3) Cree words collected from multiple first-language Cree speakers from Maskwacîs, Alberta, during the joint community-university project: nêhiyawi-pîkiskwêwina maskwacîsihk – Spoken Dictionary of Maskwacîs Cree.
