Syncretism is the area of the morphology-syntax interface where morphology fails the syntax. Inadequate treatment in the design of a morphological analyzer can lead to unbalanced performance of the analyzer either at generation , or at analysis. Furthermore, adequate and consistent treatment of syncretism is needed if the analyzer is to be used for language… (More)
The integration of semantic properties into morphological analyzers can significantly enhance the performance of any tool that uses their output as input, e.g., for derivation or for syntactic parsing. In this paper will be presented my approach to the integration of aspectually relevant properties of verbs into a morphological analyzer for English.
In this paper we describe our work in progress on FTrace, a tool for finite-state morphology that provides a tracing facility for developers of applications for synchronic and diachronic language descriptions. We discuss not only the current tool for downward tracing, but also the challenges that we face in the further development of FTrace, especially in… (More)
