Title Improving POS Tagging of German Learner Language in a Reading Comprehension Scenario
Authors Lena Keiper, Andrea Horbach and Stefan Thater
Abstract We present a novel method to automatically improve the accurracy of part-of-speech taggers on learner language. The key idea underlying our approach is to exploit the structure of a typical language learner task and automatically induce POS information for out-of-vocabulary (OOV) words. To evaluate the effectiveness of our approach, we add manual POS and normalization information to an existing language learner corpus. Our evaluation shows an increase in accurracy from 72.4\% to 81.5\% on OOV words.
Topics Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Part-of-Speech Tagging, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.)
