  • Morph length is one of the indicative feature that helps learning the morphology of languages, in particular agglutinative languages. In this paper, we introduce a simple unsupervised model for morphological segmentation and study how the knowledge of morph length affect the performance of the segmentation task under the Bayesian framework. The model is based on (Goldwater et al., 2006) unigram word segmentation model and assumes a simple prior distribution over morph length. We experiment this… CONTINUE READING
