Subject: A Recent Work for Urdu Morphology

Dear all,

I would like to inform you about a recent work for Urdu morphology,
orthography and lexicon extraction, which was done as a Master's thesis at
the Language Technology group, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

We have developed the Urdu Morphological Analyzer & Generator, a Unicode
infrastructure to accommodate Persho-Arabic script of Urdu and a lexicon
4131 words & 496976 word forms.  The work is freely available under GNU
General Public License.

A homepage has been set up for this work on which documentation (user
manuals, MS Thesis Report) and downloads (source code & executables) are
provided, while an online analysis tool is currently under construction.

The homepage of Urdu Morphology could be accessed from the following url:

While the MS Thesis report could be accessed from:

Feel free to offer feedback and suggestions.
