A Procedure for Word Derivational Processes Concerning Lexicon Extension in Highly Inflected Languages

The aim of this paper is to describe an efficient tool (I PAR) for a supervised and semi-automatic extension of a lexicon or morphological database and its easy updating. We will present the underlying algorithms and their implementation that are general enough to capture the main word-forming processes (both inflectional and derivational). They are designed for languages with a rich inflectional morphology, such as Slavonic languages, particularly Czech. The implementation is partly based on the ideas presented in the earlier paper by Kl'ymov and Pala (2000)
