Parole Common Morphosyntactical Tagset

The tables below give a full description of the part-of-speech (morpho-syntactical) tagset used in the New Corpus for Ireland.

The tagset is built on the work of the MULTEXT, PAROLE and EAGLES projects which developed tagsets applicable to a wide range of languages.

The following 15 tables describe the information associated with the various parts of speech.
(All underlined items and categories in the tables marked with * are additional items specific to Irish which were added during manual checking of the text.)
