This paper describes the implementation of a rule-based analyzer for Uygur (spoken in Sin Kiang, China) Nouns. We hope this paper will give some contribution for advanced studies to the Uygur Language in Machine Translation and Natural Language Processing. Like all Turkic languages, the Uygur Language is an agglutinative language that has productive inflectional and derivational suffixes. In this work, we implemented a finite state two-level morphological analyzer for the Uygur Nouns by using Xerox Finite State Tools.
