English: Compared to well-resourced languages such as English and Dutch; natural language processing (NLP) tools for Afrikaans are still not abundant. In the context of the AfriBooms project; KU Leuven and the North-West University collaborated to develop a first; small treebank; a dependency parser; and an easy to use online linguistic search engine for Afrikaans for use by researchers and students in the humanities and social sciences. The search tool is based on a similar development for Dutch; i.e. GrETEL; a user-friendly search engine which allows users to query a treebank by means of a natural language example instead of a formal search instruction.
