Factors Affecting Part-of-Speech Tagging for Tagalog

Abstract

This paper investigates factors contributing to the performance of the POS Tagger for Tagalog language. Tagalog, a morphologically rich language, exhibits complex morphological structure, makes use of morphological information in determining parts of speech of the word, aspect and voice. As word feature information plays important role in efficient tagging, tag set definition capturing word information also contributes to the success or failure of the tagger. A refinement of tag set is defined to possibly improve tagging performance.
