Abstract

A stemmer for the Farsi language has been designed, implemented, and evaluated. The stemmer uses Farsi morphology to remove affixes, producing effective stems. The implementation is written in C, using strings of unicode-encoded characters to represent Farsi words. It is meant to enhance the Farsi information retrieval system currently being developed at the Information Science Research Institute at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. The effectiveness of the Farsi stemmer and stopword list on recall/precision was tested.
