MorphoLex Affix Profiler     v.5 (Aug '23) Data recording; proper noun control upgrade   Read a 2023 study that reviews+uses Morpholex
MORPHOLEX lists all the regular inflectional + derivational affixes in the families of a text or word list according to  Bauer & Nation's (1993)  framework of morphological complexity. 'Regular' here means attached to an identifiable base word. This routine is a 'profiler' in that like VP it gives a percent of tokens at each category level plus the number of levels and specific affixes needed to achieve 95% and 98% coverage in a list or text. The target accuracy for this routine is 95% 98% 99%. Research: Read a 2020 study using this routine here.
