Abstract

In this paper, we describe the team BRUMS entry to OffensEval 2: Multilingual Offensive Language Identification in Social Media in SemEval-2020. The OffensEval organizers provided participants with annotated datasets containing posts from social media in Arabic, Danish, English, Greek and Turkish. We present a multilingual deep learning model to identify offensive language in social media. Overall, the approach achieves acceptable evaluation scores, while maintaining flexibility between languages.
