Title: A finite-state morphological grammar of Hebrew

Subject Language: Hebrew
Abstract: Morphological analysis is a crucial component of several natural language processing tasks, especially for languages with a highly productive morphology, where stipulating a full lexicon of surface forms is not feasible. This paper describes HAMSAH (HAifa Morphological System for Analyzing Hebrew), a morphological processor for Modern Hebrew, based on finite-state linguistically motivated rules and a broad coverage lexicon. The set of rules comprehensively covers the morphological, morpho-phonological and orthographic phenomena that are observable in contemporary Hebrew texts. Reliance on finite-state technology facilitates the construction of a highly efficient, completely bidirectional system for analysis and generation.
