TitleAn Implementation of Italian Inflection and Word Formation
AbstractThis paper presents an implementation of Italian inflection and word formation with a system called Word Manager. The system is developed by a group of computer scientists, computer linguists and linguists at the Department of Computer Science, University of Basle, Switzerland. Word Manager is a system intended for the specification, use and maintenance of morphological dictionaries as described in Domenig/ten Hacken (1992). It has different subformalisms for the specification of morphological knowledge. All inflectional and word-formation processes described in the consulted grammars have been implemented by means of these subformalisms. At least as far as word formation is concerned, it is the at present most comprehensive specification of morphological knowledge of the Italian language.
