We describe our entry in the EMNLP 2014 code-switching shared task. Our system is based on a sequential classifier, trained on the shared training set using various characterand word-level features, some calculated using a large monolingual corpora. We participated in the Twitter-genre Spanish-English track, obtaining an accuracy of 0.868 when measured on the tweet level and 0.858 on the word level.
