Amharic-English information retrieval
2006 (English)In: CLEF2006 Working Notes, CEUR-WS , 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
We describe Amharic-English cross lingual information retrieval experiments in the adhoc bilingual tracs of the CLEF 2006. The query analysis is supported by morphological analysis and part of speech tagging while we used different machine readable dictionaries for term lookup in the translation process. Out of dictionary terms were handled using fuzzy matching and Lucene was used for indexing and searching. Four experiments that differed in terms of utilized fields in the topic set, fuzzy matching, and term weighting, were conducted. The results obtained are reported and discussed.
