Accessible finite-state morphology with `lexd`
Morphology of small languages is often modeled using finite state transducers. The classical tools for this are technical, andespecially complex for non-suffixational morphologies. We introduce lexd, a new formalism for expressing morphology which is both machine-and human-readable. To illustrate, we present partial morphologies for Tsez and Chukchi written in lexd, and discuss the short comings off inite state modeling. We recommend lexd as an accessible tool appropriate for field linguists, and a part of the larger mission to develop computational resources to support and expand the impact ofthe field linguistics program at HSE.
