Gambäck, Björn and Olsson, Fredrik and Argaw, Atelach Alemu and Asker, Lars (2009) Methods for Amharic part-of-speech tagging. In: First Workshop on Language Technologies for African Languages, March 2009, Athens, Greece.
The paper describes a set of experiments involving the application of three state-of- the-art part-of-speech taggers to Ethiopian Amharic, using three different tagsets. The taggers showed worse performance than previously reported results for Eng- lish, in particular having problems with unknown words. The best results were obtained using a Maximum Entropy ap- proach, while HMM-based and SVM- based taggers got comparable results.
