Learning to Learn Morphological Inflection for Resource-Poor Languages

by   Katharina Kann, et al.
NYU college

We propose to cast the task of morphological inflection - mapping a lemma to an indicated inflected form - for resource-poor languages as a meta-learning problem. Treating each language as a separate task, we use data from high-resource source languages to learn a set of model parameters that can serve as a strong initialization point for fine-tuning on a resource-poor target language. Experiments with two model architectures on 29 target languages from 3 families show that our suggested approach outperforms all baselines. In particular, it obtains a 31.7 previously proposed cross-lingual transfer model and outperforms the previous state of the art by 1.7
