Using Two-Level Morphology to Recognize Derived Agentive Nouns

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 27)


This paper is about morphophonological modeling of derived agentive nouns. The system is implemented using the two-level morphology model, through the PC-KIMMO environment. The phonological rules are implemented through nine two-level rules, while the morphotactics is implemented using a finite state automaton.
