Abstract: Morphological lexicons for morphologically complex languages provide good text coverage at the cost of overgeneration, difficulty of modification, and sometimes performance issues. Use of simple, manageable lexicon forms – especially lists – for morphologically complex languages may appear unviable because the number of possible word-forms in a morphologically complex language can be prohibitively high. We created and experimented with a list-based lexicon for a morphologically complex language (Finnish), and compared its coverage with that of a mature morphological analyser on new text in two experimental settings. The observed smallish difference in coverage suggests the viability of using simple and easy-to-modify list-based lexicons as an initial part of morphological analysis, to increase developer control on the vast majority of input tokens.
