A memory-based approach to Kıkamba named entity recognition

Kituku B, Wagacha P, Pauw GD. "A memory-based approach to Kıkamba named entity recognition." Proceedings of conference on human language technology for development. 2011.


This paper describes the development of a data-driven part-of-speech tagger and
named entity recognizer for the resource-scarce Bantu language of Kıkamba. A small
webmined corpus for Kıkamba was manually annotated for both classification tasks and
used as training material for a memory-based tagger. The encouraging experimental results
show that basic language technology tools can be developed using limit amounts of data
and state-of-the-art language-independent machine learning techniques
