Description

This simple splitting method for German compounds combines a basic frequency-based approach with a form-to-lemma mapping to approximate morphological operations. With the exception of a small set of hand-crafted rules for modeling transitional elements, this approach is resource-poor, relying only on a lemma-frequency list and a mapping from inflected to lemmatzied forms.

Example:

Häuserfassade_N → Haus_N Fassade_N

Abfüllanlage_N → abfüllen_V Anlage_N
