<p>An efficient and reliable method for implementing Morphological Analyzer for Malayalam using Machine Learning approach has been presented here. A Morphological Analyzer segments words into morphemes and analyze word formation. Morphemes are smallest meaning bearing units in a language. Morphological Analysis is one of the techniques used in formal reading and writing. Rule based approaches are generally used for building Morphological Analyzer. The disadvantage of using rule based approaches are that if one rule fails it will affect the entire rule that follows, that is each rule works on the output of previous rule. The significance of using machine learning approach arises from the fact that rules are learned automatically from data, uses learning and classification algorithms to learn models and make predictions. The result shows that the system is very effective and after learning it predicts correct grammatical features even forwords which are not in the training set.</p>
