Abstract: This paper presents a model for Sanskrit nominal morphology (subanta) identification and analysis (i.e. prakRRiti-pratyaya vibhaaga) for ordinary (laukika) Sanskrit texts. In a Sanskrit sentence, all non-verb categories are subanta padas which makes it essential to analyze these padas before any other computer processing can begin. /L//L/Sanskrit subanta forms can be potentially very complex. They can include primary and secondary derived constructions like kridanta, taddhitanta, samaasaanta, stripratyaanta. They can also include upasargas and avyayas etc. According to Panini, there are 21 morphological suffixes (seven vibhakitis and tree numbers 7 X 3 = 21) which can attach to the nominal bases (praatipadika) according to syntactic category of the base, gender and end character of the base.
