Verbus is a technical platform/framework for building linguistic applications centered around verbs, their grammar and most importantly, their conjugations. The first concrete implementation being currently considered for Verbus is an application (a.k.a “app”) for mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets).
The framework is to be feature-rich so as to be used for several languages that exhibit conjugations, from the simplest forms to the most complex ones. In the first version of the framework, Portuguese will be the demonstration language.
Components of the framework
- Database model with Boyce-Codd normalization level
- API (Application Programming Interface) giving access to all features of the framework
- Administration interface for defining the contents of the application
- Prototype application for Web browsers
Verbus is currently a prototype.
