A two-level morphological processor

Lynne J. Cahill

A system for the analysis and production of word forms is described. The system is based on the two-level model of Kimmo Koskenniemi, with the major changes being to his lexicon system, to allow greater linguistic generalizations. The lexicon system makes use of a rule system for describing inflectional morphology proposed by Arnold Zwicky. It incorporates aspects of both models to give a system which can analyse word forms to give their morphological features, or produce correctly inflected word forms, when given the stem and features.
