DECO Inflectional Suffix Set Graphs 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The classification of Inflectional suffixe combinations is conducted for the following 4 main sets:

 

●  JN (Inflectional Suffix for NOUN: JOSA)
●  JD (Inflectional Suffix for ADVERB: JOSA)
●  EV (Inflectional Suffix for VERB: EOMI)
●  EA (Inflectional Suffix for ADJECTIVE: EOMI)

 

Each set contains a main graph calling a set of sub-graphs to provide all correct combinations of inflectional suffixes.

 

 

1. {JN.grf} GRAPH SETS 

 

- The main graph {JN.grf} is calling 3 inflectional classes such as {JN01.grf}, {JN02.grf} and {JN03.grf} that will be attached to the noun entries classified as “NS01” “NS02” and “NS03”.

 

 

 

The following graph represents the main graph for the class JN01 that contains 14 sub-graphs.  

 

 

 

 

 

The following one shows a sub-graph named {JN01_SUB} that represents all the combinations for the subject case marker:

 


 

 

 

2. {JD.grf} GRAPH SETS 

 

- The main graph {JD.grf} is calling 4 inflectional classes such as {JD00.grf}, {JD01.grf}, {JD02.grf}, {JD03.grf} that will be attached to the adverb entries classified as “DS00” “DS01” “DS02” “DS03”.

 

 

 

The class {JD01} contains all the subsets of the class {JN01} shown in the above examples.

 

 

 

3. {EV.grf} GRAPH SETS 

 

- The main graph {EV.grf} is calling 28 inflectional classes such as {EV01.grf}, {EV02.grf}, {EV03.grf},..., {EV28.grf} that will be attached to the adverb entries classified as “VS01” “VS02” “VS03”,..., “VS28”.

 

  

 

 

The following graph represents the main graph for the class EV01 that contains 37 sub-graphs.  

 

  

 

 

And the following one shows a sub-graph named {EV01_DEC1_1} that represents the combinations for the Declarative Inflectional suffixes:

 



 

 

4. {EA.grf} GRAPH SETS 

 

- The main graph {EA.grf} is calling 26 inflectional classes such as {EA01.grf}, {EA02.grf}, {EA03.grf},..., {EA26.grf} that will be attached to the adverb entries classified as “AS01” “AS02” “AS03”,..., “AS26”.

 

 


 

The following graph represents the main graph for the class EA24 that contains 37 sub-graphs.  

 

 

 

The following one shows a sub-graph named {EA24_DEC1_1} that represents some combinations for the Declarative Inflectional suffixes:

 

 


 

  _?xml_:namespace prefix = "o" />_?xml_:namespace prefix = "o" />

The inflectional classes for these first 2 categories are relatively simple compared to those for the second 2 categories: for the former, there are no morphological changes in both root forms and inflectional suffixes, whereas for the latter, there exist complex and irregular changes in root forms and/or in inflectional suffixes.

 

The numbers representing the types of the inflectional classes attached to lexical entries indicate the finite-state graphs. 

 

For the category of Nouns, there are 3 inflectional classes, whereas for that of Adverbs, there exist 4 classes. For the category of Adjectives, there are 26 classes and for that of Verbs, 28 classes are discerned (Cf. Jee-Sun Nam 2007/2010/2015).
