Abstract: Assamese is a very morphologically rich language. A little work has been done on Assamese Language Processing. . As Assamese is one of the most resource poor languages in the field of computational studies thus, we intend to present an inflectional rule-based stemmer for Assamese language. Stemming is the simplest and prior step for natural language processing (NLP), it is a procedure which removes the suffixes from the root word. This performs very little morphological analysis. After stemming the resultant word is known as ‘Stem’ or root word. The proposed system is language dependent and domain independent. A suffix stripping algorithm is used to design the system. The system is evaluated with 20,000 words.
