Morphological Inflection

33 papers with code • 0 benchmarks • 1 datasets

Morphological Inflection is the task of generating a target (inflected form) word from a source word (base form), given a morphological attribute, e.g. number, tense, and person etc. It is useful for alleviating data sparsity issues in translating morphologically rich languages. The transformation from a base form to an inflected form usually includes concatenating the base form with a prefix or a suffix and substituting some characters. For example, the inflected form of a Finnish stem eläkeikä (retirement age) is eläkeiittä when the case is abessive and the number is plural.

Morphological Inflection Generation with Hard Monotonic Attention

roeeaharoni/morphological-reinflection ACL 2017

We present a neural model for morphological inflection generation which employs a hard attention mechanism, inspired by the nearly-monotonic alignment commonly found between the characters in a word and the characters in its inflection.
