Not exactly - currently it only matches words word for word in the lexicon. I'm also trying to build a kind of pattern matching in - so that if you enter a text with a pattern it has seen before (say, 2ns-V-PRT) it will recognize it and auto-gloss it. I'm not really into formal grammar descriptions, I like to let my analysis be determined by the data. (Besides, I'm not competent to develop a formal grammar - lack of schooling.)

No, Kura is Nepali for 'language' ;-). About the only Japanese I've any familiarity with are the particles wa, ga and no... I'm not into manga or Japanese game consoles, or anything else Japanese really, so I haven't got much stimulus to acquaint myself with its vocabulary. Boudewijn Rempt |
