Computer implementation of the genitive in Latvian

Greitane, Inguna (1995) In Working Papers, Lund University, Dept. of Linguistics 44.
Abstract
Latvian is one of the Baltic languages, a subclass of the Indo-European family. It is a flectional language and has a rich system of morphology, including seven cases and two numbers. Word order in a Latvian noun phrase can in general be characterized as head final. A genitive in Latvian is used as a tool to bind nouns in a noun phrase and express possession, except with verbal nouns where the genitive may function as an actor or a patient. I have used Musdienu latviesu literaras valodas gramatika I (1959) and A grammar of modern Latvian (Fennell & Gelsen 1980) for reference.
