Abstract : Virtta or Chandas in languages like Sanskrit,Malayalam is a set of well defined rules that give rhythm to thepoetry. The basic unit in this analysis is short-long (laghu-guru)letters and this can be viewed as a mathematical measure inwhich the prosody of poetry is made. The computation of theseprosodic patterns has many advantages in various fields of NLP.This paper discusses the computation of prosodic patterns andpresents a rule-based system for identifying short-long (laghu-guru) patterns from input Malayalam strings.
