Due to my work I'm working with a tool for morphological parsing called
PC-Kimmo (by a Fin called Kimmo Koskenniemi).  In orther to implement a
parsing of the Spanish language.  (This is a word level morphological
parcing.)

In order to implement the lexical files and rules, I've taking form my mind,
and making a little of research of the regular irregularities of the Spanish
language... it allows me to answer a previous question rised by Nik or Tom
about verbs like _dormir_ with the semirregular form _duerme_ (like _mover_
=> _mueve_) but _durmio'_ (alike _movio'_): the third conjugation verbs (ir
verbs), has a regular change of -e- and -o- (either e/e or e/ie) vowels in
roots when the inflexion has no stressed i.

Thus:
  dormir,  sentir, pedir  (stressed i in inflexion)
  duerme, siente, pide  (stress in root)
  durmio', sintio', pidio' (stressed inflexion)

Well I became happy when I found this an could recognize with no further
lexicon.

I wonder if someone else has use this tool.  I think is very convinient to
recognize forms in very flexional languages either natlangs or conlangs.
I'm planing to use in my conlang projects.  Kimmo can be found at Summer
