Identification of reduplication words is a Natural Language Processing task that extracts reduplicative words from various text forms and classifies them according to full, partial and discontinuous type. Over the years, magnificent growth could be observed in the use of regional languages on the web in the terms of news, opinions, tweets, hash tags, reviews, articles and blogs etc. Identification and classification of reduplication words task are very challenging in computational linguistic point of view, especially if the text is written in regional languages. The availability of linguistic resources for Punjabi language is not available such as automatic tools for tokenization, feature selection, stemming and tagging etc. In this paper, we have designed an algorithm and develops Graphical User Interface which accepts input as a Punjabi text and gives output by highlighting reduplicative words and also classified the types of identifying reduplicative words. Corpus based and Rule based approaches are used for implementation of the algorithm and experimental results are evaluated from the implementation.
