Morphological doubletism refers to a phenomenon whereby two (or more) forms of the same lexeme
have the same grammatical meaning (e.g. leapt/leaped, cactuses/cacti). Inspired by a lack of a linguistic
resource where examples of specific doublet forms in the Croatian language could be found, the authors of
this paper launched the project of creating a database whose ultimate goal is to create a list of grammatical
categories in which morphological doubletism occurs and a list of lexemes which appear with doublet
forms, as confirmed by tokens of the respective forms retrieved from Croatian language sources (computer
corpora, lexicographic sources, literature and other relevant materials). The primary aim is to create an
easily accessible and searchable resource that would enhance the research of morphological doubletism in
Croatian and that the Croatian scientific community would be able to access for free. Each token would be
accompanied by information regarding the work it occurs in, the year the work was created, the author of
the work, his/her geographic areal, type of text and the relevant morphological labels. These data can be
used to trace the phenomenon from the point of its entry into the language through all changes up to its
present–day status, determine the distribution of individual forms in the modern language and ultimately
determine the role of morphological doublets in the language system. The database can contribute to
providing more precise descriptions of the language, which mostly disregard the phenomenon in question.
