Title Morphological Parsing, the Mental Lexicon and the Dictionary
Abstract This paper deals with the ‘word’ status of suffixes in a Turkish speaker’s mental lexicon and their perception as units. Listing of individual suffixes and parsing methods based on isolation techniques are criticized. The computation of various suffix strings in Turkish leads to the early conclusion that suffixes, which tend to co-occur frequently, lose their individual meanings and acquire unit status. A treatment of these as units may remove certain delimitations in computational applications and the ambiguity problem frequently encountered when parsing Turkish texts.
