This chapter looks at computational approaches to the study of morphology. Reflecting the dual nature of computational linguistics, it looks at both computational methods for testing theories and approaches to handling morphology for practical computational applications. The chapter starts with a history of the field and an explanation of two principal approaches. It continues with a detailed look at the methods of implementation used, followed by the range of applications in the field of NLP that have some reliance on morphological processing. Finally it presents the recent work which has seen the field to some degree split into approaches to typologically distinct language families.
