Joining Hands: Exploiting Monolingual Treebanks for Parsing of Code-mixing Data

Irshad Bhat, Riyaz A. Bhat, Manish Shrivastava, Dipti Sharma


Abstract
In this paper, we propose efficient and less resource-intensive strategies for parsing of code-mixed data. These strategies are not constrained by in-domain annotations, rather they leverage pre-existing monolingual annotated resources for training. We show that these methods can produce significantly better results as compared to an informed baseline. Due to lack of an evaluation set for code-mixed structures, we also present a data set of 450 Hindi and English code-mixed tweets of Hindi multilingual speakers for evaluation.
