Morphonette is a derivational morphological network of French in which words are characterized by the paradigms they belong to: their derivational families and series. This resource was built from a large lexicon of written forms. Its creation is based on a measure of morphological proximity and on formal analogy. Three additional criteria are used to separate the relation between members of the same family from the ones between members of the same series and to eliminate most of the morphologically invalid connections. The paradigmatic organization of the lexicon is described by means of fi laments which account for the different morphological properties of individual words.
