Greek Stemmer

This Greek Stemmer is developed during the master thesis with title "Development of a Stemmer for the Greek Language" in the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm's University / Royal Institute of Technology. The system takes as input a word and removes its inflexional suffix according to a rule based algorithm. The algorithm follows the known Porter algorithm for the English language and it is developed according to the grammatical rules of the Modern Greek language.
