This is a follow-on project which requires the corresponding NLP dictionary to be completed first.

Once a Kurdish dictionary has been created, a phrase parser can be implemented. A phrase parser involves taking in Kurdish text and parsing it linguistically into noun phrases, verb phrases, and other phrases.
