Morphology, Yoruba, Transducer
Morphological analyzers are essential parts of many natural-language processing system such as machine translation systems; they may be efficiently implemented as finite state transducers. This paper models a Yoruba lexical analyzer using a rule based approach to computational morphology. This analysis relies solely on one source of information: a dictionary of the valid Yoruba language words. Keywords: Morphology, Yoruba, Transducer
