We evaluate the performance of an morpho- logical analyser for Inuktitut across a medium- sized corpus, where it produces a useful anal- ysis for two out of every three types. We then compare its segmentation to that of sim- pler approaches to morphology, and use these as a pre-processing step to a word alignment task. Our observations show that the richer ap- proaches provide little as compared to simply finding the head, which is more in line with the particularities of the task.
