POS Tagging and Less Resources Languages Individuated Features in CorpusWiki

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9561)


CorpusWiki ( is an online tool for building POS tagged corpora in (almost) any language. The system is primarily aimed at those languages for which no corpus data exist, and for which it would be very difficult to create tagged data by traditional means. This article describes how CorpusWiki uses individuated morphosyntactic features to combine the flexibility required in annotating less-described languages with the requirements of a POS tagger.
