We’ve wanted to work on creating a Khmer grammar checker for some time now, and now we have begun. We found the LanguageTool extension for OpenOffice and decided it was the best option for a Khmer grammar checker. Here is a proof-of-concept video:
The first Khmer grammar rule we chose to input is someone controversial, but because it was an easy rule to input into the grammar checking program, so we decided to use it (see: http://khmaesuolhien.wordpress.com/2007/11/05/mistakes/ for more info on the rule).
We need your help to begin the long and hard process of programming the extension with Khmer grammar rules. First we need to collect all Khmer grammar rules, and then work on putting them into the xml language that LanguageTool uses so that the rules can be checked automatically by the program.
Let us know in the comments what you think and if you are willing to help us.
