Chinese Word Segmentation and Information Retrieval

David D. Palmer and John D. Burger

In this paper we present results of experiments with Chinese word segmentation and information retrieval. Our experiments with three different word segmentation algorithms indicate that accurate segmentation measurably improves retrieval performance. We discuss the evaluation of word segmentation algorithms for the purpose of better indexing segmented texts for retrieval.
