Subject: [Corpora-List] Re: Looking for Automatic POS Tagging Software

Dear list members,

I'm looking for automatic POS tagging software for my research. Searches
in internet often show literature about how to improve the accuracy and
effectiveness of tagging programmes and about the algorithms used for
tagging but not software that is available in the market. CLAWS is
commonly used software but the problem is that it runs on UNIX, of which
I have no knowledge.

I would be grateful to anyone who could give me pointers on relevant
software that is available in the market or on any relevant websites.
The most suitable software for me should be user-friendly, able to
produce reasonably accurate results, able to run on Windows and able to
tag words with subclassification, e.g. to tag adjectives as predicates,
attributes, superlatives, participles, etc.
