We present a technique for refining a base- line segmentation and generating a plausible underlying morpheme segmentation by inte- gratinghand-writtenrewriterulesintoanex- isting state-of-the-art unsupervised morpho- logical induction procedure. Performance on measures which consider surface-boundary accuracy and underlying morpheme consis- tency indicates this technique leads to im- provements over baseline segmentations for English and Turkish word lists.
