© LREC 2018 - 11th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation. All rights reserved.This paper describes a finite-state approach to morphological analysis and generation of Gagauz, a Turkic language spoken in the Republic of Moldova. Finite-state approaches are commonly used in morphological modelling, but one of the novelties of our approach is that we explicitly handle orthographic errors and variance, in addition to loan words. The resulting model has a reasonable coverage (above 90%) over a range of freely-available corpora.
