EO3: Written Systems Evaluation
This paper presents an evaluation of four shallow parsers The interest of each of these parsers led us to imagine a parameterized multiplexer for syntactic information based on the principle of merging the common boundaries of the outputs given by each of these programs. The question of evaluating the parsers as well as the multiplexer came in the foreground with the problem of not owning reference corpora. We attempt here to demonstrate the interest of observing the ‘common boundaries’ produced by different parsers as good indices for the evaluation of these algorithms. Such an evaluation is proposed and tested with a set of two experiences.
