Arabic Flair + fastText Part-of-Speech tagging Model (Egyptian and Levant)

Pretrained Part-of-Speech tagging model built on a joint corpus written in Egyptian and Levantine (Jordanian, Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian) dialects with code-switching of Egyptian Arabic and English. The model is trained using Flair (forward+backward)and fastText embeddings.

Pretraining Corpora:

This sequence labeling model was pretrained on three corpora jointly:

  1. 4 Dialects A Dialectal Arabic Datasets containing four dialects of Arabic, Egyptian (EGY), Levantine (LEV), Gulf (GLF), and Maghrebi (MGR). Each dataset consists of a set of 350 manually segmented and PoS tagged tweets.
  2. UD South Levantine Arabic MADAR A Dataset with 100 manually-annotated sentences taken from the MADAR (Multi-Arabic Dialect Applications and Resources) project by Shorouq Zahra.
  3. Parts of the Cairo Students Code-Switch (CSCS) corpus developed for "Collection and Analysis of Code-switch Egyptian Arabic-English Speech Corpus" by Hamed et al.
