Inflection of Polish Multi-Word Proper Names with Morfeusz and Multiflex

  • Chapter
Aspects of Natural Language Processing

Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Computer Science ((LNISA,volume 5070))

Abstract

We discuss morphological properties of Polish multi-word proper names. We present a cooperating framework of two morphological tools: Morfeusz, a morphological analyser and generator for Polish simple words, and Multiflex, a cross-language morpho-syntactic generator of multi-word units. We discuss interface constraints required for the interoperability of these tools, and we show how the resulting platform allows one to describe the morpho-syntactic behaviour of some interesting examples of Warsaw multi-word toponyms.
