Abstract: 
A systematic approach for automatically generating derivational variants based on the SPECIALIST Lexicon was proposed and implemented in Lexical Tools [1]. This approach addressed the prefix (PD), zero (ZD), and suffix (SD) derivations from nominalizations  (nomD). This paper describe s the generation of SD (not from nomD) based on the Lexicon in the Lexical Tools, including both SD-Facts and SD-Rules. New derivational features, such as negation, derivation types, and enhanced algorithms are also included in the Lexical Tools 2013 release for better precision and recall in NLP applications.
