A Benchmark Corpus and Neural Approach for Sanskrit Derivative Nouns Analysis

by   Arun Kumar Singh, et al.

This paper presents first benchmark corpus of Sanskrit Pratyaya (suffix) and inflectional words (padas) formed due to suffixes along with neural network based approaches to process the formation and splitting of inflectional words. Inflectional words spans the primary and secondary derivative nouns as the scope of current work. Pratyayas are an important dimension of morphological analysis of Sanskrit texts. There have been Sanskrit Computational Linguistics tools for processing and analyzing Sanskrit texts. Unfortunately there has not been any work to standardize validate these tools specifically for derivative nouns analysis. In this work, we prepared a Sanskrit suffix benchmark corpus called Pratyaya-Kosh to evaluate the performance of tools. We also present our own neural approach for derivative nouns analysis while evaluating the same on most prominent Sanskrit Morphological Analysis tools. This benchmark will be freely dedicated and available to researchers worldwide and we hope it will motivate all to improve morphological analysis in Sanskrit Language.
