We call it hybrid because it consists of two separate parts interacting with each other in a welldefined way. The treatment of morphonology and nonoconcatenative morphology is based on the two-level approach originally proposed by Koskenniemi (1983). For the concatenative part of morphosyntax (i.e. affixation) we make use of a grammar based on feature-unification. tloth parts rely on the same morph lexicon. Combinations of two-level morphology with t'eature-based morphosyntactic grammars have already been proposed by several authors (c.f. llear 1988a, Carson 1988, G6rz & Paulus 1988, Schiller & Steffens 1990) to overcome the shortcomings of the continuation-classes originally proposed by Koskenniemi (1983) and Karttunen (1983) for the description of morphosyntax. But up to now no linguisti...
