Project description

In this project the aim is to lay the foundation for the first fully-corpus based grammar of Northern Sotho. Following six weeks of work, the intention is to have completed the theoretical framework, to have access to a better corpus with better corpus tools, and to have begun with a few selected sub-aspects of the corpus-based grammar itself.
