In this paper we present the work done on developing a Morphological Analyzer (MA) for Oriya language, following the paradigm approach. A paradigm defines all the word forms of a given stem, and also provides a feature structure associated with every word. It consists of various paradigms under which nouns, adjectives, indeclinables (avyaya) and finite verbs of Oriya are classified. Further, we discuss the construction of paradigms and the thought process that goes into their construction. The paradigms have been created using an XML based morphological dictionary from the Lt-toolbox package.
