Hindi POS tagging and chunking : An MEMM approach Aniket Dalal Kumar Nagaraj Uma Sawant Sandeep Shelke Under the guidance of Prof. P. Bhattacharyya
Goal Lexical Analysis Part-Of-Speech (POS) Tagging : Assigning part-of-speech to each word. e.g. Noun, Verb... Syntactic Analysis Chunking : Identify and label phrases as verb phrase, noun phrase etc. Language : Hindi Approach : MEMM
Outline Maximum Entropy Markov Model (MEMM) Principle Mathematical formulation System overview Parameter estimation and classification POS tagging features Chunking features Results and error analysis Future work Conclusion
Maximum Entropy Markov Model Maximum entropy principle The least biased model which considers all known information is the one which maximizes entropy. Entropy
Maximum Entropy Markov Model Mathematical formulation... The distribution with the maximum entropy is equivalent to \
System overview Parameter estimation and classification GIS (Generalized Iterative Scaling) finds the model parameters that define the maximum entropy classifier for a given feature set and training corpus Beam Search heuristic search algorithm, optimization of best-first search unfolds the first m most promising nodes at each depth
What are features? Feature function : Indicator function which captures useful facts of the modelling task For example,
POS tagging features Context-based POS tag of previous word Current word Word-dependent Suffixes Digits Special characters English words
POS tagging features Dictionary-based Possible tags for the word, according to the dictionary Corpus-driven Occurrence of a word and its tag(s) according to the training data
Chunking features Context based features Word itself (conditionally) POS tag Chunk label of previous word Current POS tag based feature Tag class
Experimental Setup 26 POS tags 6 chunk labels 75 - 25 split of training and test data Result averaged over 10 data sets
Results POS tagging accuracy Best : 89.346 % Average : 88.4 % Chunk labelling accuracy (per word basis) Best : 87.399 % Average : 86.45 %
Error Analysis : POS tagging Good performance for : VAUX, VFM, VNN Postpositions Need to improve : Compound tags Proper nouns
Error Analysis : Chunking Good performance for : Noun phrase Need to improve : Verb phrase
Future Work Morphological Features Enriching dictionary Hybrid models
