Choosing a Spanish Part-of-Speech tagger for a lexically sensitive task

Carla Parra Escartín, Héctor Martínez Alonso


In this article, four Part-of-Speech (PoS) taggers for Spanish are compared. The evaluation has been carried out without prior training or tuning of the PoS taggers. To allow for a comparison across PoS taggers, their tagsets have been mapped to the universal PoS tagset (Petrov, Das and McDonald, 2012). The PoS taggers have also been compared as regards the information they provide and how they treat special features of the Spanish language such as verbal clitics and portmanteaux.
