Abstract

Navya-Nyāya (NN) school of philosophy, an offshoot of Nyāya school of philosophy, apart from philosophical contributions, has contributed a scientific methodology and terminology to express the philosophical thoughts and debates in an unambiguous way. This scientific terminology and methodology leads to linguistic expressions which are typically hard to comprehend due to their linear structure, long compounds and extensive usage of derivational suffixes (Taddhitas). In order to make the comprehension easy, we have built a semi-automatic computational tool. This tool has four components viz. a segmenter, compound parser, type identifier and a graph renderer. In this paper we describe the compound type identifier.
