Implementing a formal model of inflectional morphology

Abstract : Inflectional morphology as a research topic lies on the crossroads of many linguistic subfields, such as linguistic description, linguistic typology, formal linguistics and computational linguistics. However, the subject itself is tackled with diverse objectives and approaches each time. In this paper, we describe the implementation of a formal model of inflectional morphology capturing typological generalisations that aims at combining efforts made in each subfield giving access to every one of them to valuable methods and/or data that would have been out of range otherwise. We show that both language description and studies in formal morphology and linguistic typology on the one hand, as well as NLP tool and resource development on the other benefit from the availability of such a model and an implementation thereof.
