This paper presents an approach to computational morphology which can be considered as being derived l¥om the two-level model but differs from this substantially. Lexemes rather than formatives are the most important entities distinguished in this approach. The consequence is that a new formalism for the specification of morphological knowledge is required. A short description of a system called Word Manager will outline the characteristics of such a formalistn, the most prominent of which is that different subformalisms for inflectional rules and word- formation rules are distinguished. These rules are applied separately though not independently and support the concept of lexicalization. The primary advantage of this is that the system can build up a network of knowledge on how formativ...
