Morphological Analyzer for Nepali Text

Morphology is the part of linguistics that deals with the study of words, their internal structure and syntactically their meanings. A Morphological Analysis is the process of providing grammatical information of a word by detecting its morphemes. A morphological analysis generally consists of following information:
Word segmentation
Part-of-speech tagging

These are the very basics of linguistics which lays ground to many other applications. There are various different tools and resources available for morphology analysis of popular languages such as English, but morphological analysis of Nepali texts had been in a shadow for long. Fortunately, the need of these analysis has slowly been recognized.
