Overview for the Second Shared Task on Language Identification in Code-Switched Data

We present an overview of the second shared task on language identification in code-switched data. For the shared task, we had code-switched data from two different language pairs: Modern Standard Arabic-Dialectal Arabic (MSA-DA) and Spanish-English (SPA-ENG). We had a total of nine participating teams, with all teams submitting a system for SPA-ENG and four submitting for MSA-DA. Through evaluation, we found that once again language identification is more difficult for the language pair that is more closely related. We also found that this year's systems performed better overall than the systems from the previous shared task indicating overall progress in the state of the art for this task.
