Mahlow, C; Piotrowski, M (2009). A Target-Driven Evaluation of Morphological Components for German. In: Clematide, S; Klenner, M; Volk, M. Searching Answers -- Festschrift in Honour of Michael Hess on the Occasion of his 60th birthday. Münster: MV-Wissenschaft, 85-99.

Accepted Version


In this paper we present an evaluation of rule-based morphological components for German for use in an interactive editing environment. The criteria for the evaluation are deduced from the intended use of these components, namely availability, performance, programming interfaces, and analysis quality. We evaluated systems developed and maintained since decades as well as new systems. However, we note serious general shortcomings when looking closer at recent implementations and come to the conclusion that the oldest system is the only one that satisfies our requirements.
