Dear Farhad,

if you're building a lexicon from scratch, you might be interested in the paper:

Eros Zanchetta and Marco Baroni (2005) Morph-it! A free corpus-based morphological resource for the Italian language, proceedings of Corpus Linguistics 2005, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK (http://sslmit.unibo.it/~eros/downloads/Morph-it.pdf).

It describes a method for the rapid creation of a lexicon using a mixture of corpus based techniques and manual checking. We created an Italian lexicon, but the method may be applied to other languages too.

Best, Eros Zanchetta
