JKimmo: A Multilingual computational mophology frame work for PC-KIMMO
MetadataShow full item record
Morphological analysis is of fundamental interest in computational linguistics and language processing. While there are established morphological analyzers for mostly Western and a few other languages using localized interfaces, the same cannot be said for Indic and other less-studied languages for which language processing is just beginning. There are three primary obstacles to computational morphological analysis of these less-studied languages: the generative rules that define the language morphology, the morphological processor, and the computational interface that a linguist can use to experiment with the generative rules. In this paper, we present JKimmo, a multilingual morphological open-source framework that uses the PC-KIMMO two-level morphological processor and provides a localized interface for Bangla morphological analysis. We then apply Jkimmo to Bangla computational morphology, demonstrating both its recognition and generation capabilities. Jkimmo’s internationalization (i18n) frame-work allows easy localization in other languages as well, using a property file for the interface definitions and a transliteration scheme for the analysis.
