Morphisto is a morphological analyzer and generator for German wordforms. The basis of Morphisto is the open-source SMOR morphology for the German language developed by the University of Stuttgart (GPL v2) for which a free lexicon is provided under the Creative Commons 3.0 BY-SA Non-Commercial license.

The Morphisto lexicon was originally developed at the Institute for the German Language, Mannheim (Germany) as part of the TextGrid project. This site hosts the new central place to go on the net for everything regarding Morphisto: Bugfixes and improvements, new feature, utilities, and getting in touch with the developers.

Morphisto requires as dependency the SFST toolkit available from the University of Stuttgart, as well as a computer running a contemporary Unix distribution (Ubuntu, Debian, OSX, you name it).
