Part of speech, Morphology, Tagging, Verb, Noun



Sanskrit,called the mother of all Indian languages, plays important role in Indian literature. All the Indian languages are expected to be derived from Sanskrit language. If we change the order of words in formation of the Sentences in Sanskrit, the meaning will remain same i.e., Sanskrit is free ordering language (or syntax free language) and there is no ambiguity in the form of the words even if the order changes. Morphological analysis is a core component of language processing for Indian languages .Complexities involved in spell checking of documents in Sanskrit can be analyzed. We have applied morphological analysis to a large number of words in different parts of speech. A spellchecker based on this analysis has been developed. This paper proposes the architecture of the spellchecker and the spell-checking algorithm based on morphological rules
