Bengali Dasgupta and Ng 2007 worked on take all splits method Goldsmith s method was. unsupervised morphological parsing for Benga purely unsupervised but we have used a list of. li Pandey and Siddiqui 2008 proposed an un hand crafted Gujarati suffixes in our approach. supervised stemming algorithm for Hindi based to learn a better set of stems and suffixes during. on Goldsmith s 2001 approach the training phase In our approach we make. Unlike previous approaches for Indian lan use of a list of Gujarati words extracted from. guages which are either rule based or complete EMILLE corpus for the purpose of learning the. ly unsupervised we propose a hybrid approach probable stems and suffixes for Gujarati during. which harnesses linguistic knowledge in the the training phase This set of stems and suffix. form of a hand crafted suffix list es will be used for stemming any word provided. to the stemmer We have described the details,3 Gujarati Morphology of our approach below. Gujarati has three genders masculine neuter 4 1 Training Phase. and feminine two numbers singular and plur During the training phase we try to obtain the. al and three cases nominative obli optimal split position for each word present in. que vocative and locative for nouns The gend the Gujarati word list provided for training We. er of a noun is determined either by its meaning obtain the optimal split for any word by taking. or by its termination The nouns get inflected on all possible splits of the word see Figure 1 and. the basis of the word ending number and case choosing the split which maximizes the function. The Gujarati adjectives are of two types dec given in Eqn 1 as the optimal split position The. linable and indeclinable The declinable adjec suffix corresponding to the optimal split. tives have the termination in neuter ab position is verified against the list of 59 Gujarati. solute The masculine absolute of these adjec suffixes created by us If it cannot be generated. tives ends in o and the feminine absolute in by agglutination of the hand crafted suffixes. For example the adjective s r then the length of the word is chosen as the. good takes the form s r s ro and optimal split position i e the entire word is. s r when used for a neuter masculine treated as a stem with no suffix. and feminine object respectively These adjec, tives agree with the noun they qualify in gender stem1 suffix1 stem2 suffix2 stemL suffixL. number and case The adjectives that do not end NULL. in in neuter absolute singular are classified as, indeclinable and remain unaltered when affixed Figure 1 All Possible Word Segmentations. f i i log freq stemi L i log freq suffixi,The Gujarati verbs are inflected based upon a.
combination of gender number person aspect Eqn 1,i split position varies from 1 to L. tense and mood,L Length of the word,There are several postpositions in Gujarati. which get bound to the nouns or verbs which The function used for finding the optimal. split position reflects the probability of a partic. they postposition e g n genitive marker,ular split since the probability of any split is. m in e ergative marker etc These,determined by the frequencies of the stem and. postpositions get agglutinated to the nouns or,suffix generated by that split The frequency of.
verbs and not merely follow them,shorter stems and suffixes is very high when. We created a list of hand crafted Gujarati suf,compared to the slightly longer ones Thus the. fixes which contains the postpositions and the,multipliers i length of stemi and L i length of. inflectional suffixes for nouns adjectives and,suffixi have been introduced in the function in. verbs for use in our approach,order to compensate for this disparity.
Once we obtain the optimal split of any word ible split using the frequencies of stems and suf. we update the frequencies of the stem and suffix fixes obtained from the training process The. generated by that split We iterate over the word word is stemmed at the position for which the. list and re compute the optimal split position value of the function is maximum. until the optimal split positions of all the words. remain unchanged The training phase was ob 5 Experiments and Result. served to take three iterations typically,We performed various experiments to evaluate. 4 2 Signatures the performance of the stemmer using EMILLE.
