A tagset is a list of part-of-speech tags (POS tags for short), i.e. labels used to indicate the part of speech and sometimes also other grammatical categories (case, tense etc.) of each token in a text corpus.

Dutch TreeTagger part-of-speech tagset is available in Dutch corpora annotated by the TreeTagger tool that was developed by Helmut Schmid in the TC project at the Institute for Computational Linguistics of the University of Stuttgart.

This is the default Dutch TreeTagger tagset with additional tag det__excl for exclamative determiner.

An Example of a tag in the CQL concordance search box[tag="num.*"] finds all numerals, e.g. 100, eerste (note: please make sure that you use straight double quotation marks)
