Abstract

Using currently available Mongolian linguistic resources such as the lists of stems of nouns and verbs as well as the list of suffixes, this paper proposes a method for morphologically analyzing noun/verb phrases of the Mongolian language.More specifically, we first examine phonological and morphological constraints on connecting stems of nouns/verbs and suffixes, and invent inflection/conjugation rules for nouns/verbs.We experimentally show that, almost 100% cases, correct noun/verb phrases can be found among the candidates of noun/verb phrases generated by the proposed method.Then, we compile a table for mapping a stem-suffix pair and a phrase to be generated from the stem-suffix pair.Morphological analysis of noun/verb phrases is performed by simply consulting this mapping table.We experimentally show that, by the proposed method, correct candidate of stem-suffix pair can be obtained from the given noun/verb phrases.
