Titel TreeTagger - a language independent part-of-speech tagger
Autor Helmut Schmid


The TreeTagger is a tool for annotating text with part-of-speech and lemma information. It was developed by Helmut Schmid in the TC project at the Institute for Computational Linguistics of the University of Stuttgart. The TreeTagger has been successfully used to tag various languages including German, English, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Bulgarian, Russian, Greek, Portuguese, Chinese, Swahili, Latin, Estonian and old French texts and is adaptable to other languages if a lexicon and a manually tagged training corpus are available.

Sample output:

word pos lemma 
The  DT  the 
TreeTagger  NP  TreeTagger 
is  VBZ  be 
easy  JJ  easy 
to  TO  to 
use  VB  use 

The TreeTagger can also be used as a chunker for English, German, and French. The parameter file for the French chunker was kindly provided by Michel Généreux.



The Tree Tagger pages are maintained by Helmut Schmid.
