I have received several inquiries and requests from Wikimedia community
members for release of the Cherokee lexicons for incorporation into
the Wiktionary and several adjunct projects which support Wiktionary
projects for the Native Cherokee Language.
Cherokee Language Lexicons have been released and posted to
The released lexicons are in text format and follow the format
for individual words.
These lexicons do not contain the verb parsing and decomposition rules
for pure translation of the 14 tenses, and are simply
dictionaries of common words used by most modern speakers. Complex
sentence construction requires the AI inference
engine which reorders english sentences into Cherokee contructs, then
synthesizes the verb stem and pronoun modifiers
for each phrase. These lexicons are however, an ideal beginning for
contruction of a Wiktionary for the Cherokee Language.
