Xn recent years the nature and the role of a morphological component in NLP systems has attracted a lot of attention. The two-level model of Koskenniemi which relates graphemlc to morphological structure has been succesfully implemented in the form of finite state automata. Xn EUROTRA a solution which combines morphological and surface syntactic processing in one CFG implemented in a unification grammar framework has been tried out. This article contrasts these two approaches considering especially the feasibility of building morphologlcal modules for a big multilingual MT system in a decentralised R & V project.
