Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


We propose a new clustering algorithm for the induction of the morphological paradigms. Our method is unsupervised and exploits the syntactic categories of the words acquired by an unsupervised syntactic category induction algorithm [1]. Previous research [2,3] on joint learning of morphology and syntax has shown that both types of knowledge affect each other making it possible to use one type of knowledge to help learn the other one.
