An experiment in computational parsing of the Navajo verbHulden, Mans; Bischoff, Shannon T.; University of Arizona (University of Arizona Linguistics Circle, 2008)This paper presents preliminary research on a computational parser for core Navajo morphology where any inflected verb is automatically decomposed, together with the inflectional and derivational structure of the verb. The grammatical implementation largely follows Faltz (1998) and Young and Morgan (1987); Young et al. (1992). We also report some proposals for reducing the amount of allomorphy and phonological rules in the description of Navajo verbal morphology, and potential uses of such a parser.
