Dipaloke SahaMd Saddam HossainMD. Saiful IslamSabir Ismail

In this paper, we describe a research method that generates Bangla word clusters on the basis of relating to meaning in language and contextual similarity. The importance of word clustering is in parts of speech (POS) tagging, word sense disambiguation, text classification, recommender system, spell checker, grammar checker, knowledge discover and for many others Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. In the history of word clustering, English and some other languages have already implemented some methods on word clustering efficiently. But due to lack of the resources, word clustering in Bangla has not been still implemented efficiently. Presently, its implementation is in the beginning stage. In some research of word clustering in English based on preceding and next five words of a key word they found an efficient result. Now, we are trying to implement the tri-gram, 4-gram and 5-gram model of word clustering for Bangla to observe which one is the best among them. We have started our research with quite a large corpus of approximate 1 lakh Bangla words. We are using a machine learning technique in this research. We will generate word clusters and analyze the clusters by testing some different threshold values.
