Generation, Implementation and Appraisal of an N-gram based Stemming Algorithm

B. P. Pande, Pawan Tamta, H. S. Dhami

A language independent stemmer has always been looked for. Single N-gram tokenization technique works well, however, it often generates stems that start with intermediate characters, rather than initial ones. We present a novel technique that takes the concept of N gram stemming one step ahead and compare our method with an established algorithm in the field, Porter's Stemmer. Results indicate that our N gram stemmer is not inferior to Porter's linguistic stemmer.
