This article surveys resource-light monolingual approaches to morphological analysis and tagging. While supervised analyzers and taggers are very accurate, they are extremely expensive to create. Therefore, most of the world languages and dialects have no realistic prospect for morphological tools created in this way. The weakly-supervised approaches aim to minimize time, expertise and/or financial cost needed for their development. We discuss the algorithms and their performance considering issues such as accuracy, portability, development time and granularity of the output.
