The main objective of this course is presentation of the main concepts and models for the computational treatment of morphology (regular expressions, finite-state automata etc). The course will center mainly on languages with rich morphology. During the course, the student will use the foma tool, a free and open source tool for finite-state processing. The course also introduces neural sequence-to-sequence (seq2seq) models as applied to morphology using the OpenNMT tool.
