Development of morphological analysis systems for inflective languages is a tedious and laborious task. We suggest an approach for development of such systems that permits to spend less time and effort. It is based on static processing of stem allomorphs and the method of analysis known as “analysis through generation.” These features allow for using the morphological models oriented to generation, instead of developing special analysis models. Normally, generation models are presented in traditional grammars and correspond very well to the intuition of speakers. Systems based on this approach were developed for Russian and Spanish.
