This paper describes the implementation of a two-level morphological analyzer for the Turkmen Language. Like all Turkic languages, the Turkmen Language is an agglutinative language that has productive inflectional and derivational suffixes. In this work, we implemented a finite-state two-level morphological analyzer for Turkmen Language by using Xerox Finite State Tools.
