Subject: German Morphology Browser

We want to announce a new linguistic online service, the 
German Morphology Browser which can be found at


The German Morphology Browser is powered by the WordManager 
Transducer Toolkit. The program knows 1.2 million German 
words, their morphosyntactic features, and their mapping to 
some 130'000 lexemes. In addition, it contains all relationships 
between simple and complex lexemes. Out of the 130'000 lexemes, 
only 13.4% are simple. The other entries are complex and are 
constructed out of simple lexemes.

This resource serves as basis for various innovative Web 
applications as e.g. for Language Learning, Information Retrieval, 
Hyperlink Generation.

Like other forthcoming Language Products of the Canoo Engineering 
AG the German Morphology Browser is based on a cooperation with 
the University of Basel, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and IDSIA
