- Product Description
Presented in this book is the design, implementation and evaluation of a finite state morphological parser for Mohawk formal nouns. Utilizing the finite state morphology software designed by Beesely and Karttunen (2003) along with three of the most comprehensive grammars for Mohawk, one from each of the major dialectal regions, a lexicon for a finite state system was created. In addition to the parser, a taxonomy of Mohawk prefixes and suffixes was developed for the finite state system. The research shown here demonstrates that the Mohawk language’s formal nouns can successfully be described and parsed using the techniques of finite state morphology. With further study and review it is perhaps possible a finite state system could be expanded to include all Mohawk nouns, verbs, and particles. This work is an effort to provide greater access to the Mohawk language for the speakers and learners of the language through the development of digital language tools. It is also an effort to support the creation of linguistic resources for other polysynthetic and under-resourced languages.
