Welcome to the homepage of the Demonext project.

Demonext consists in the construction of a French morphological database (MDB) that describes the derivational properties of words in a systematic manner. The MDB will meet multiple needs, such as empirical confirmation of morphological hypothesis and elaboration of new ones, design of natural language processing (NLP) tools, vocabulary teaching and the treatment of developmental or acquired language disorders.

Demonext is a research project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), identified as   ANR-17-CE23-0005
