This paper presents a morphophonology-based Item-and-Process approach to the finite-state lemmatization and morphological analysis of Polish. Unlike current text-based techniques, which search for all possible orthographic representations of Polish morphological suffixes, the multilevel phonological feature based algorithm presented here extracts morphophoneme arrays from graphemic word forms, allowing the extraction of abstract suffixes, independent of their surface representation. This makes it possible to use a simple mono-lemmatic dictionary, as well as to distinguish between homographic suffixes, and to carry out various phonological and morphological investigations using suffix fields in corpora.
