This paper argues for the use of formal methods from historicalcomparative reconstruction in the design of synchronic representations for multilingual lexica of genetically closely related languages. A model is discussed before an extended example with Slavic languages is given together with an implementation in DATR.
This paper discusses an analysis of Bulgarian noun inflection that uses non-monotonic inheritance and abstract morphophonemic representation. The analysis is encoded in the lexical knowledge representation language DATR. In this discussion, we approach Bulgarian noun inflection in terms close to those of Network Morphology (cf. Corbett & Fraser (1993)) and… (More)
Syncretism is the area of the morphologysyntax 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)
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)
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.
