A Tour of Greek Morphology: Part 2

Part two of a tour through Greek inflectional morphology to help get students thinking more systematically about the word forms they see (and maybe teach a bit of general linguistics along the way).

A Tour of Greek Morphology: Part 1

This is the first post in a (likely long) series exploring the inflectional morphology of Greek. My goal is to work through various aspects of Greek morphology to help students think more systematically about the subject.

Modelling Derivational Morphology

While most of my focus has been on inflectional morphology, I’ve done a little bit of work on modelling derivational morphology and it’s been a desideratum for my reader and learning algorithm work dating back to at least the original 2008 “New Kind of Graded Reader” presentations.

Update on LXX Progress

As mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been working through the LXX, initially making sure my greek-inflexion library can generate the same analysis of verbs as the CATSS LXX Morphology and adding to the verb stem database accordingly. This is a preliminary to being able to run the code on alternative LXX editions such as Swete and provide a freely available morphologically-tagged LXX.
