    • dungu: word, language, subject.
    • pe: indicates temporal and/or physical proximity to the facts.
    • ye: indicates a constant feature.
    • m: the mark of the instrumental nominal verb, indicates instrument or location.

    The translation could be something like "tool frequently used to do something with language", to us: "language tool".

    Dungupeyem (language tool)

    Dungupeyem is a finite state morphological analyser and generator for Mapudungun, and is based on the algorithms developed by Mans Hulden at his project FOMA (, an open source application that compiles finite state transducers.

    While processing, Dungupeyem interacts with NMT, unifying the orthography first and analysing later.

    The rules for Dungupeyem's performance, and the tags it uses are based on the description and study of Mapudungun made by Dr. Ineke Smeets and published at his book "A Grammar of Mapuche".
