Named Entity Recognition is an important application area of Natural Language Processing. It is the process of identifying the designators which are present in a sentence called as named entities. Named Entity Recognition can be performed using rule based approaches, machine learning based approaches and hybrid approaches. This paper proposes a method for Named Entity Recognition of Malayalam language using one of the supervised machine learning approach called Conditional Random field approach.
