Token attributes

Hebrew is a language with a rich morphology. The tagger output in Hebrew has 27 different attributes, some of which are relevant only to certain parts of speech. Apart from usual attributes such as word, tag and lemma, there are transcriptions to latin alphabet, various morphology categories (affixes), various grammatical categories (gender, number, person, case). The tagset reference can be found below. More about the annotation.

Whenever an attribute is irrelevant or missing, its value is string ‘NULL’. For example, to search for all nouns in the corpus which are prefixed with the definite article, issue the following CQL query: [tag=”noun” & prefdefinite=”NULL”].

Tokens, lemmas, prefixes and suffixes were transliterated according to the following key:
‫ת ש ר ק צ פ ע ס נ מ ל כ י ט ח ז ו ה ד ג ב א‬
a b g d h w z x v i k l m n S y p c q r e T
Whereas the token and lemma attributes are available both in Hebrew alphabet and romanised transliteration, the prefix string and the suffix string appear only in transliteration.
