Description: PC-KIMMO is designed for those interested in computational linguistics, descriptive linguists, and those developing natural language processing systems. The program is designed to generate and/or recognise and parse words using a two-level mode of word structuring in which a word is represented as a correspondence between its lexical level form and its surface level form. The user supplies a rules file which specifies the alphabet and the philological or spelling rules, and a lexicon file which lists lexical items such as words, morphemes and their glosses, and encodes morphotactic constraints. PC-KIMMO includes a rules compiler, an interlinear text editor, and a coded dictionary of English containing 20,000 items.

Requirements: Versions are available for a PC running DOS, Apple Macintosh, and UNIX systems.
