Abstract

The MPRO system is a package of programs developed by the Institute for Applied Information Science (IAI) to perform morphological, syntactic and semantic analysis for several languages. Especially for German the MPRO system is a very efficient and robust language software tool. The linguistic analysis within the system is split up into several sub-tasks. In this paper we will present the general MPRO tagging procedure and its sub-tasks in some detail. We will take a closer look at the single program modules and their particular output. The function of each module is described in detail together with the possible parameters of the features given in the particular output. Furthermore the description of each module is enriched with manifold practical examples to demonstrate the functionality of the system. Finally some possible areas of application of the MPRO software package are stated.
