Summary of the paper

Title Comparing the Level of Code-Switching in Corpora
Authors Björn Gambäck and Amitava Das
Abstract Social media texts are often fairly informal and conversational, and when produced by bilinguals tend to be written in several different languages simultaneously, in the same way as conversational speech. The recent availability of large social media corpora has thus also made large-scale code-switched resources available for research. The paper addresses the issues of evaluation and comparison these new corpora entail, by defining an objective measure of corpus level complexity of code-switched texts. It is also shown how this formal measure can be used in practice, by applying it to several code-switched corpora.
Topics Evaluation Methodologies, Multilinguality, Validation of LRs
