In terms of morphological resources, Turkish turns out to be an underresourced language in a Natural Language Processing and linguistic perspective. There are not enough exhaustive resources that systematically describe Turkish derivational morphology, especially from a semantic aspect. The research aims to describe Turkish derivational morphology, limited to the scope of noun-to-noun derivation. Based on the hypothesis that word formation rules can be systematically described at both semantic and formal levels, our goal is to:

From an applicative point of view, our goal is to create extendible and interoperable resources for various tasks related to NLP and linguistics, such as: This approach, based on the establishment of a repertoire of meanings, could be possibly extended to various word-class morphemes and/or other languages that do not have such kinds of tools.
