An Extended Sequence Tagging Vocabulary for Grammatical Error Correction

12 Feb 2023  ·  Stuart Mesham, Christopher Bryant, Marek Rei, Zheng Yuan ·

We extend a current sequence-tagging approach to Grammatical Error Correction (GEC) by introducing specialised tags for spelling correction and morphological inflection using the SymSpell and LemmInflect algorithms. Our approach improves generalisation: the proposed new tagset allows a smaller number of tags to correct a larger range of errors. Our results show a performance improvement both overall and in the targeted error categories. We further show that ensembles trained with our new tagset outperform those trained with the baseline tagset on the public BEA benchmark.
