Abstract: This paper describes the system description for the HinglishEval challenge at INLG 2022. The goal of this task was to investigate the factors influencing the quality of the codemixed text generation system. The task was divided into two subtasks, quality rating prediction and annotators’ disagreement prediction of the synthetic Hinglish dataset. We attempted to solve these tasks using sentencelevel embeddings, which are obtained from mean pooling the contextualized word embeddings for all input tokens in our text. We experimented with various classifiers on top of the embeddings produced for respective tasks. Our best-performing system ranked 1st on subtask B and 3rd on subtask A. We make our code available here: https://github. com/nikhilbyte/Hinglish-qEval.
