Objectives: This study aims about the development of Anyuak language named entity recognition of its first kind. NER is a fundamental sub task in natural language processing and the high accuracy competence in NER system marks the effectiveness of the downstream tasks. Anyuak language named entity recognition concern is addressed by using a long short-term memory model to categorize tokens into predefined classes. Methods: A long short-term memory is used to model the NER for Anyuak language to detect and classify words into five predefined classes: Person, Time, Organization, Location, and Others (non-named entity words). Because of feature selection plays a vital role in long short-term memory framework, the experiment in this work were conducted to discover most suitable features for Anyuak NER tagging task. Findings: When we evaluated the experiment in cross-validation, we achieved a promising result of precision, recall, and F1-measure values of 98%, 90, and 94% respectively. From the experimental result, it is possible to determine that tag context, word features, part of speech tags, suffixes and prefixes are significant features in named entity recognition and classification for Anyuak language. Novelty: Finally we have contributed a new architecture for Anyuak NER which uses automatically features for Anyuak named entity recognition which are not dependent on other NLP tasks. We proved that deep learning models can be extended, trained and can work for Anuak languages.
