Title UPPC - Urdu Paraphrase Plagiarism Corpus
Authors Muhammad Sharjeel, Paul Rayson and Rao Muhammad Adeel Nawab
Abstract Paraphrase plagiarism is a significant and widespread problem and research shows that it is hard to detect. Several methods and automatic systems have been proposed to deal with it. However, evaluation and comparison of such solutions is not possible because of the unavailability of benchmark corpora with manual examples of paraphrase plagiarism. To deal with this issue, we present the novel development of a paraphrase plagiarism corpus containing simulated (manually created) examples in the Urdu language - a language widely spoken around the world. This resource is the first of its kind developed for the Urdu language and we believe that it will be a valuable contribution to the evaluation of paraphrase plagiarism detection systems.
Topics Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.), Textual Entailment and Paraphrasing, Evaluation Methodologies
