The course demonstrates how HFST tools can be used for generating finite-state morphologies. Through practical exercises, students will learn how to use finite-state methods to develop a morphology for a language. This online course is suitable as a complement to a more theory or linguistics-oriented course on morphology.
After successfully completing the course:
- you can explain the basic theory on finite-state automata and transducers,
- you can design morphological lexica using finite-state technology,
- you know how to write morpho-phonological rules in a finite-state framework,
- you understand the diversity of morphological structure in different languages
and you know how to take these differences into account when designing computational models of morphology.
