EMMA: A novel Evaluation Metric for Morphological Analysis

  title={EMMA: A novel Evaluation Metric for Morphological Analysis},
  author={Sebastian Spiegler and Christian Monson},
We present a novel Evaluation Metric for Morphological Analysis (EMMA) that is both linguistically appealing and empirically sound. EMMA uses a graphbased assignment algorithm, optimized via integer linear programming, to match morphemes of predicted word analyses to the analyses of a morphologically rich answer key. This is necessary especially for unsupervised morphology analysis systems which do not have access to linguistically motivated morpheme labels. Across 3 languages, EMMA scores of… CONTINUE READING
