Koskemnieni‘s two-level model has received a lot attention in modeling morphology. In this paper we present an ongoing study on a comprehensive two-level description of Kazakh morphology. Our description is implemented using the morphological parser in the Dilmaç Machine Translation Framework. A lexicon containing the root words of contemporary Kazakh is used in the testing. Phonological and morphological special cases and exceptions have been considered in nominal, and verbal conjugations. To out knowledge this is the first time Kazakh phonological rules and morphotactics are computationally described which makes it possible to implement other linguistics applications such as machine translation systems.
