Annotation tools accurate?


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I have a quick question: The annotation tool Mandarinspot sometimes groups two characters together when they are supposed to be one word. As a beginner level student I am not able to tell if and how often this is done correctly. Does it (or other annotation tools) accoplish this with acceptable accuracy? Are there better tools out there?

Thanks for your help

The free online tools I have seen use a naive segmentation algorithm based on lookups in free dictionaries. The results are mostly correct, but not to be taken as a gold standard.

For a beginner, I do not recommend using these tools.

Instead, you will soon organically learn to segment on your own through exposure to text and perhaps by working with segmented pinyin materials.
