Morphological Processing For Turkish
Published 2018 · Computer Science
This chapter presents an overview of Turkish morphology followed by the architecture of a state-of-the-art wide coverage morphological analyzer for Turkish implemented using the Xerox Finite State Tools. It covers the morphophonological and morphographemic phenomena in Turkish such as vowel harmony, the morphotactics of words, and issues that one encounters when processing real text with myriads of phenomena: numbers, foreign words with Turkish inflections, unknown words, and multi-word constructs. The chapter presents ample illustrations of phenomena and provides many examples for sometimes ambiguous morphological interpretations.
