TUIG is a natural language processing system for Irish which creates a representation of the information contained in declarative sentences in Irish using an approach combining Phrase Structure Grammars and Case Frame Grammars. The syntax recognised by TUIG is based on research carried out during the 1960s into the occurrences of sentence structures in spoken Irish.
