Morphological Analyser

The Malagasy morphological analyser is implemented using the Xerox finite-state tools LEXC and XFST. Our treatment of affixal verbal morphology and genitive compounding consists of a lexicon written in LEXC and more general orthographic rules written in XFST.

For downloads and information on LEXC and XFST, please see http://www.fsmbook.com.
