Open-Source Morphology for Endangered Mordvinic Languages

Jack Rueter, Mika Hämäläinen, Niko Partanen


Abstract
This document describes shared development of finite-state description of two closely related but endangered minority languages, Erzya and Moksha. It touches upon morpholexical unity and diversity of the two languages and how this provides a motivation for shared open-source FST development. We describe how we have designed the transducers so that they can benefit from existing open-source infrastructures and are as reusable as possible.
