Natural Language processing deals with analysing, generating and understanding the languages that human generally use. Morphological Analyzer is an important part in Natural Language Processing. Morphological Analyzer always returns the morpheme and its associated grammatical structure. This paper describes about the different techniques in morphological analyzer and different implementations of morphological analyzer in Malayalam.
