In linguistics, morphology is a study regarding word, word formation, its analysis, and generation. A morphological analyzer is a tool to understand grammatical characteristics and constituent’s part-of-speech information. A morphological analyzer is a useful tool in many NLP implementations such as syntactic parser, spell checker, information retrieval, and machine translation. Here, 328 Sanskrit words are tested through four morphological analyzers namely—Samsaadhanii, morphological analyzers by JNU and TDIL, both of which are available online and locally developed and installed Sanguj morphological analyzer. There is a negligible divergence in the reflected results.
