- Update on Irish Verb Conjugation Game (26 Mar 2018)
I just noticed that Geoglot Apps released Irish Verb Blitz, an Irish verb conjugation app last weekend. I haven’t tried the game myself, but presently it has only been downloaded about 5 times with no reviews. As they have a series of Verb Blitz games, I imagine they decided to release an Irish version as they’d only need to replace the database. The issue with this one-model for all languages approach is that the present conjugations are technically incorrect (brisim mé makes no sense, it is either brisim or bris mé). Also there is no reference to negation or questions (níor bhris mé, ar bhris tú?).

- Determining an Algorithm for Conjugating Russian Verbs (10 Jul 2015)
A few days ago I spoke about a game-application for testing the conjugation of Russian verbs, noting the need for either a large database of conjugated verbs, or an algorithm. Well today I investigated the feasibility of such an algorithm.
- Aspector / Conjugator (29 Jun 2015)
A few months back I spoke about Declinator, an application game for testing one’s command of the various noun and adjective declinations for Russian. Today I want to introduce Aspector and Conjugator, two impromptu applications I have just created.
