MAP: Cambridge/Edinburgh Morphological Analyzer and Dictionary System

MAP lets the user create lexicons for English (and other languages) suitable for use in a natural language parsing systems. In addition to simple look up, the system includes a rule driven morphological analyzer. Thus words to be held in the lexicon in stem and affix form (e.g. "move", and "ed", "ing"), and the morphological analyzer can segment given full words into their basic components (e.g. "moved" to "move ed" and "travelling" to "travel ing"). thus cutting down the number of required entries in the lexicon. The work is done within the framework of general feature grammars and two-level morphology. MAP is a more powerful representation formalism than KIMMO two-level finite state transducers, which offer only finite state morphosyntax and finite state morphographemics.
