A serious Game to Collect POS Tags for Turkish Sentences

A serious Game to Collect POS Tags for Turkish Sentences

A part-of-speech (POS) tag is a special label assigned to each word in a text to indicate the part of speech and also other grammatical categories such as tense, number, case, and so on. POS tags are used in text analysis tools and algorithms. Although there are some natural language processing (NLP) tool kits to process Turkish, there is still room for improvement for their performances. This projects aims to collect gold sets from humans through a serious game. The collected data will be used in training and evaluating NLP tools for Turkish in the future.

A serious game is a game with a purpose rather than pure entertainment. The goal of this project is to design a serious game for collecting POS tags for Turkish texts. Some challenges are listed below:

  • Incorporate game elements and mechanics in the design
  • Have an attractive visual design
  • Label and store the collected data
  • Cross-validate responses

Required skills are:

  • Web programming skills
  • Basic understanding of NLP

The project can be done in a group of two or three students. It is designed to be a two term project.
