  • Mahmud, Altaf; Ahmed, Kazi Zubair; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2008-12)
    While the internet has become the leading source of information, it is also become the medium for flames, insults and other forms of abusive language, which add nothing to the quality of information available. A human ...
  • Alam, Firoj; Nath, Promila Kanti; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2007)
    In this paper, we present a Text to Speech (TTS) synthesis system for Bangla language using the open-source Festival TTS engine. Festival is a complete TTS synthesis system, with components supporting front-end processing ...
  • Pavel, Dewan Shahriar Hossain; Sarkar, Asif Iqbal; Shah, Faisal Muhammad; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper addresses the issue of building a Bangla lexicon with a collaborative effort through stand alone application and web based interface. The words in the lexicon will be annotated with a combination of tags addressing ...
  • Pavel, Dewan Shahriar Hossain; Sarkar, Asif Iqbal; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper addresses the issue of automated Bangla corpus creation, which will significantly help the processes of lexicon development, morphological analysis, automatic parts of speech detection and automatic grammar ...
  • Naushad UzZaman,; Zaheen, Arnab; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    A transliteration scheme from Roman (English) to Bangla can help increase the use of Bangla in essential and diverse computing areas such as word processing, Internet and mobile communication and information query and ...
  • Alam, Firoj; Habib, S. M. Murtoza; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2008)
    This paper describes the acoustic characteristics of Bangla consonants, obtained by analyzing the recordings of male and female voices. First, the duration of each phoneme was identified by averaging both the male and ...
  • Naushad UzZaman,; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    We present a comprehensive Bangla spelling checker that improves the quality of suggestions for misspelled words. The complex rules for Bangla spelling presents a significant challenge in producing suggestions for a ...
  • Hasnat, Md. Abul; Habib, S. M. Murtoza; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2007)
    The wide area of the application of HMM is in Speech Recognition where each spoken word is considered as a single unit to be recognized from the trained word network. Using this concept some research has been done for ...
  • Khan, Mumit; Faruqe, Farhana (BRAC University, 2008)
    Advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications are increasingly dependent on the availability of linguistic resources, ranging from digital lexica to rich tagged and annotated corpora. While these resources are ...
  • Ali, Hammad; Haque, Nafid (BRAC University, 2007)
    In this paper, we talk about a decentralised information retrieval system which would be suitable for the developing countries that face the problem of limited bandwidth. In this paper we came up with an implementation ...
  • Salm, Khan Md. Anwarus Salam; Khan, Mumit; Nishino, Tetsuro (BRAC University, 2009)
    In this paper we propose an architecture of English-Bengali Example Based Machine Translation (EBMT) using WordNet. The proposed EBMT system has five steps: 1) Tagging 2) Parsing 3) Prepare the chunks of the sentence using ...
  • Alam, Firoj; Habib, S. M. Murtoza; Sultana, Dil Afroza; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2010)
    This paper describes the development procedure of three different Bangla read speech corpora which can be used for phonetic research and developing speech applications. Several criteria were maintained in the corpora ...
  • Hasnat, Md. Abul; Chowdhury, Muttakinur Rahman; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2009)
    Tesseract is considered one of the most accurate free software OCR engines currently available. It was originally developed by Hewlett-Packard from 1985 until 1995, and is currently maintained by Google. At present, Tesseract ...
  • Mosaddeque, Ayesha Binte; UzZaman, Naushad; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper presents a rule based ronunciation generator for Bangla words. It takes a word and finds the pronunciations for the graphemes of the word. A grapheme is a unit in writing that cannot be analyzed into smaller ...
  • Alam, Md. Jahangir; UzZaman, Naushad; Khan, Mumit (Center for research on Bangla language processing (CRBLP), BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper describes a statistical grammar checker, which considers the n-gram based analysis of words and POS tags to decide whether the sentence is grammatically correct or not. We employed this technique for both Bangla ...
  • Shatil, Adnan Mohammad Shoeb; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper presents a method to use Kohonen neural network based classifier in Bangla Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system, providing much higher performance than the traditional neural network based ones. It describes ...
  • Islam, Md. Zahurul; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    Morphological analysis is of fundamental interest in computational linguistics and language processing. While there are established morphological analyzers for mostly Western and a few other languages using localized ...
  • Haque, Nafid; Ali, M Hammad; Abduallah, Matin Saad (BRAC University, 2006)
    In this paper, we talk about developing a search engine and information retrieval system for Bangla. Current work done in this area assumes the use of a particular type of encoding or the availability of particular facilities ...
  • Khan, Naira; Habib, Md. Tarek; Alam, Md. Jahangir; Rahman, Rajib; UzZaman, Naushad; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper presents a directional advantage of n-gram modeling in terms of backward or forward n-gram modeling in Bangla. The most commonly used n-gram analysis is predominantly a forward n-gram. However in Bangla it appears ...
  • Khan, Naira; Khan, Mumit (BRAC University, 2006)
    This paper describes the first phase of developing a computational grammar for Bengali using the Head- Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) formalism. The HPSG formalism is a highly developed framework that combines ...
