KU-CST at the SIGMORPHON 2020 Task 2 on Unsupervised Morphological Paradigm Completion

Manex Agirrezabal, Jürgen Wedekind


Abstract
We present a model for the unsupervised dis- covery of morphological paradigms. The goal of this model is to induce morphological paradigms from the bible (raw text) and a list of lemmas. We have created a model that splits each lemma in a stem and a suffix, and then we try to create a plausible suffix list by con- sidering lemma pairs. Our model was not able to outperform the official baseline, and there is still room for improvement, but we believe that the ideas presented here are worth considering.
