Chukchi is a language with rich and complicated morphology and incorporation.
By now morphological parsers using regular expressions were not able to handle it properly
HFST seems to be the solution


Anticipated result: morphological analyser for Chukchi that handles

  • nouns
  • verbs
  • incorporation (probably)


The result of this work, if it succeeds, would be of great use for linguists investigating Chukchi and an important brick for building a corpus of Chukchi.
