  • Performance measure: F = 2 * Precision * Recall / (Recall + Precision)
  • Precision: percentage of NPs found by the algorithm that are correct
  • Recall: percentage of NPs defined in the corpus that were found by the chunking program
  • Training data: sections 15-18 of Wall Street Journal corpus (Ramshaw and Marcus)
  • Testing data: section 20 of Wall Street Journal corpus (Ramshaw and Marcus)
  • original data of the NP chunking experiments by Lance Ramshaw and Mitch Marcus
  • data contains one word per line and each line contains six fields of which only the first three fields are relevant: the word, the part-of-speech tag assigned by the Brill tagger, and the correct IOB tag
