The Nabu morphological processor is designed to perform a number of different func- tions, of which five have so far been identified: analysis, guessing (about unknown words), syn- thesis, defaulting (proposing the most likely in- flectional paradigm for a new base form), and coding (producing all possible inflectional paradigm variants for a new base form). Com- plete or very substantial analyzers have been produced for a number of diverse languages; other functions have been implemented as well. This paper discusses our design philosophy, as well as our technique and its implementation.
