MorphAdorner drives a text through the following stages or "pipes."

  • Input
  • Sentence Splitting
  • Tokenization
  • Spelling Standardization
  • Part of Speech Tagging
  • Lemmatization
  • Output

Each of these stages is defined in terms of Java interfaces. Each interface has an associated factory class which MorphAdorner uses to instantiate particular implementations of the interface under control of a configuration file. This allows easy substitution of different implementations into the pipeline by changing the configuration file. A programmer can create new custom implementations of any interface and tell MorphAdorner to use the custom implementation in the configuration file. Each pipe can also be used independently of MorphAdorner.

MorphAdorner is more of a programmer's construction kit than as an end-user turnkey system. However, you can try MorphAdorner online by selecting one of the processing features in the menu to the left. The documentation below offer programming examples upon which you can build your own programs using the facilities of MorphAdorner.
