Abstract: Code-Mixing is a phenomenon of mixing two or more languages in a speech event and is prevalent in multilingual societies. Given the low-resource nature of Code-Mixing, machine generation of code-mixed text is a prevalent approach for data augmentation. However, evaluating the quality of such machine generated code-mixed text is an open problem. In our submission to HinglishEval, a sharedtask collocated with INLG2022, we attempt to build models factors that impact the quality of synthetically generated code-mix text by predicting ratings for code-mix quality. HinglishEval Shared Task consists of two sub-tasks - a) Quality rating prediction); b) Disagreement prediction. We leverage popular codemixed metrics and embeddings of multilingual large language models (MLLMs) as features, and train task specific MLP regression models. Our approach could not beat the baseline results. However, for Subtask-A our team ranked a close second on F-1 and Cohen’s Kappa Score measures and first for Mean Squared Error measure. For Subtask-B our approach ranked third for F1 score, and first for Mean Squared Error measure.
