a Morphophonemic Approach to Polish Morphological Analysis
Philosophische Fakultät II
This paper presents a morphophonology-based Item-and-Process approach to the finite-state lemmatization and morphological analysis of Polish. Unlike current text-based techniques, which search for all possible orthographic representations of Polish morphological suffixes, the multi-level algorithm presented here extracts morphophoneme arrays from graphemic word forms, allowing the extraction of abstract suffixes, independent of their surface representation. This makes it possible to use a simple mono-lemmatic dictionary, as well as to distinguish between homographic suffixes, and to carry out various phonological and morphological investigations using suffix fields in corpora.
