IR Paper: Comparison of Tibetan ngram and Word Retrieval

Postby kirtu » Wed Dec 21, 2011 1:51 pm

Here's an information retrieval/computational linguistics paper by Hackett and Oard: Comparison of Word-Based and Syllable-Based Retrieval for Tibetan

Abstract Tibetan retrieval based on automatically segmented words is compared with the use of overlapping syllable n-grams using a known-item retrieval evaluation. The optimal span of fixed-length n-grams is found to be 2 syllables, and indexing words is found to be as effective as indexing syllable bigrams.
