Language documentation involves linguistic analysis of the collected material, which is
typically done manually. Automatic methods for language processing usually require
large corpora. The method presented in this paper uses techniques from bioinformatics
and contextual information to morphologically analyze raw text corpora. This paper presents initial results of the method when applied on a small Kilivila corpus.
