Abstract—Natural language processing is a technique where any language can be analyzed for its pure class of grammar. In this paper, we have presented the classification of Tamil poetry to the ‘paa’ to which it belongs to by using a rule based technique. The rules are constructed using Context Free Grammar by referring to the literature of Tamil. The input is parsed, converted to an intermediate representation and then the classification is performed. A classification accuracy of more than 90% was achieved.
Index Terms—Venpa, tamil poem, context free grammar.
