Abstract

In this article, the morphological parser used within the Dutch part of the MENELAS-project is described. The parser handles inflection, derivation and compounding. Its main characteristic is that it is specific for the medical sublanguage. The paper will focus on the architecture and the working principles of the parser and on the semi-automatic extension module for the lexicon. Some suggestions for improvement are made.
