A Distributed Dictionary - Based Morphological Analysis Framework for Russian Language Processing

D.A. Ustalov, M.L. Goldstein
This article describes an approach to scaling service morphological parsing of words of natural language processing of various collections of documents in Russian. An overview and critical analysis of existing solutions. The requirements workbench vocabulary morphological analyzer were established. The distributed architecture of the web service morphological analysis, designed to a handle large collections of documents in Russian, presented the form of a structural model. This architecture is implemented as a prototype system in the programming language Ruby. The structure used in the morphological dictionary of a relational schema. Tests of this method in a distributed computing environment showed linear scalability of the proposed solutions. The configuration of the experiment involves the generation of the system load as a HTTP requests, system load balancing working nodes of a distributed system, application servers with a functioning database analyzer and morphological dictionary, as well as a caching node to reduce costs when you run queries to the dictionary. Applying this approach provides a linear increase in performance in distributed systems, automated processing of large volumes of text.
