Amharic-English Information Retrieval
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[4] 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. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3 [Information Storage and Retrieval]: H.3.1 Content Analysis and Indexing; H.3.3 Information Search and Retrieval; H.3.4 Systems and Software; H.3.7 Digital Libraries; H.2.3 [Database Managment]: Languages--Query Languages General Terms Languages, Measurement, Performance, Experimentation Keywords Amharic, Amharic-to-English, Cross-Language Information Retrieval
