This paper describes Word Manager, a system which is currently the object of a research project at the University of Zfirich Computer Science Department. Word Manager supports the definition, access and maintenance of lexical databases. It comprises a formal language for the implemenation of morphological knowledge. This formal language is integrated in a graphics-oriented, high-level user Interface and is language independent. The project is now in the prototyping phase where parts of the software are pretty far advanced (the user interface) and.others are still rudimentary (the rule compilcr/runtime system). The design of the system was strongly influenced by Koskenniemi's two-level model /Koskenniemi 1983/, its successors /Bear 1986/, /Black 1986/, /Borin 1986/, /Darymple 1987/, the ANS...
