Word segmentation is an important support of semantic analysis, Machine Translation, QA, knowledge mapping research work, mainly used in information retrieval, text processing, data processing and many other areas of Natural Language Processing. Therefore, the realization of word segmentation is a very meaningful work. The method of this paper is to segment the syllables of the text corpus of Lao language and complete the maximal matching of syllables and dictionaries. Then match the results of the word segmentation and the error dictionary, and correct some wrong words by the error dictionary. Finally, we use regular expressions to match the corresponding word strings in segmentation results and correct the wrong words by some artificially formulated rules of the alphabet, numbers, etc. in the Lao language. It can improve the efficiency and accuracy rate of Laos Word Segmentation.
Key words: Word segmentation / the maximal matching / Syllable segmentation
