Morphological analysis and generation: a first step in natural language processing

Ken Beesley
Computer programs that perform morphological analysis and generation are a useful bridge between language resources, such as corpora, lexicons and printed grammars, and the overall field of natural language processing, whcih includes tokenization, spelling checking, spelling correction, non-trivial dictionary lookup, language teaching and comprehension assistance, part-of-speech disambiguation, syntactic parsing, text-to-speech, speech recognition, and many other applications. This paper is an overview of morphological analysis/generation using finite-state techniques, listing available software, showing how existing language resources can be used in building and testing morphology systems, and explaining how root-guessing morphological analyzers can help expand those resources by actively suggesting new roots that need to added to the lexicon.
