Bagvalal is an endangered typologically rare Caucasian language from the Nakh-Daghestanian family. Its conservation and study are constrained by the lack of sufficient NLP-tools that can be used to process field data. My proposal is to develop an fst-powered morphological analyzer for Bagvalal using all the available grammatical and lexical information. In the future this project can allow Apertium to support morphological analysis for multiple Nakh-Daghestanian languages and develop corresponding language pairs.
