A New Punjabi Keywords Extraction System

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 298)


Keywords are set of important thematic words that represent the whole document. This paper discusses a novel approach for determination of Punjabi keywords. Earlier Keywords extraction systems for Punjabi were not much efficient as those were using less number of features for extracting keywords. But the proposed Punjabi keywords extraction system is very efficient as it is using six features for extracting Punjabi keywords as compared to earlier systems like: TF-ISF feature, Noun frequency feature, font type feature (Bold font, Italics font and Underlined font), Cue phrase feature, Position feature and title keyword feature. The proposed approach also uses regression for assigning weights to these six features.
