Avalokitam - Tamil Prosody Analyzer

Avalokitam is a Prosody Analyzer for the Tamil Language. It constructs a parse tree of the input text based on the prosodic syllable patterns. Based on this parse tree, the input verses are analyzed for all the six basic elements of Tamil prosody: eḻuttu (Phone), acai (Metreme), cīr (Metrical Foot), taḷai (Linkage), aṭi (Metrical Line), toṭai (Ornamenation). The meter of the verse is then recognized by matching the elements with the elaborate and complex rules of Tamil prosody.

It is named upon Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, whom the Tamil Mahayana Buddhists of the yore considered as the progenitor of the Tamil Language.

The Tool runs on PHP in Google App Engine. It has a REST API and can also be run from the terminal.
