Performance Analysis of a Part of Speech Tagging Task

  title={Performance Analysis of a Part of Speech Tagging Task},
  author={Rada Mihalcea},
In this paper, we attempt to make a formal analysis of the performance in automatic part of speech tagging. Lower and upper bounds in tagging precision using existing taggers or their combination are provided. Since we show that with existing taggers, automatic perfect tagging is not possible, we offer two solutions for applications requiring very high precision: (1) a solution involving minimum human intervention for a precision of over 98.7%, and (2) a combination of taggers using a memory… CONTINUE READING
