The paper describes the construction and testing of an electronic application for semi-automatic morphological analysis of Old English. It introduces the state of the art in the field of electronic analysis of Old English, provides a brief overview of Old English morphology and discusses the reasoning behind our theoretical framework. An account of the chosen methodology is offered and a specific description of its implementation is provided: from the acquisition and preparation of the lexical input data, through the programming of the forms generator to the testing of the results by analysing Old English text. The resulting recall of 95% is a success; however, the paper also hints at how it may be improved. It also discusses further use and development of the analyser, especially the disambiguation of its results. The paper makes a future semi-automatic morphological tagging of Old English texts a real possibility.
