Morphological analysis is the basic enabling technology for many kinds of text processing. Recognition of word forms is the first step towards part-of-speech tagging, parsing, translation, and other high-level applications. The two central problems in morphology are:
Content Analysis work on morphology is based on the fundamental insight that both problems can be solved with the help of finite automata:
Lexical transducers have many advantages. They are bidirectional (the same network for both analysis and generation), fast (thousands of words per second), and compact.
Comprehensive morphological analyzers are available for Czech, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish and Russian.
Other analyzers exist for Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.
