We present a morphological analyser for German inflection and word formation implemented in finite state technology. Unlike purely lexicon-based approaches, it can account for productive word formation like derivation and composition. The implementation is based on the Stuttgart Finite State Transducer Tools (SFST-Tools), a non-commercial FST platform. It is fast and achieves a high coverage.
