Abstract: Hindi is free word-order language and morphologically rich language due to this applying Part of Speech tagging is very challenging task. Here, we have used HMM and Trigram model for POS tagging of Hindi. We have trained our tagger on 50000 manually POS tagged sentences. These two algorithms gave us an accuracy of 97.05% and 98.28% respectively for trigram and HMM models.
