Proceedings of the IJCAI – 2007 Workshop On Shallow Parsing for South Asian

Abstract

As part of the IJCAI workshop on ”Shallow Parsing for South Asian Languages”, a contest was held in which the participants trained and tested their shallow parsing systems for Hindi, Bengali and Telugu. This paper gives the complete account of the contest in terms of how the data for the three languages was released, the performances of the participating systems and an overview of the approaches followed for POS tagging and chunking. We finally give an analysis of the systems which gives insights to directions for future research on shallow parsing for South Asian languages.
