[Corpora-List] Tagset mapping (Negra -> Penn Treebank)

Dear Corpora members,

I am interested in comparing the part-of-speech tag distributions of
English vs. German. Currently, I'm looking into using the WSJ Penn
Treebank for English, and the Negra and TIGER corpora for German.
However, the tagsets of WSJ vs. Negra/TIGER are different, so I'm
wondering if anyone has any mapping that converts from the Negra/TIGER
tagset to the WSJ tagset?

In other words, is there some document that specifies, to the best
effort possible, which tags in the Negra tagset
(http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/projects/sfb378/negra-corpus/stts.asc)
corresponds to which tags in the WSJ tagset
(http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/docs/treebank2/cl93.html).

Thanks in advance!
Kevin Duh
