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.

Tajik part-of-speech tagset is available in the Tajik corpus. A tag entry consists of lemma and number describing part of speeches which have assigned the numbers from 01 to 16  according to 16 categories. The part-of-speech tagging did not pass a process of disambiguation that means there can be more tags for one word.

The Tajik tagger was developed by Gulshan Dovudov, Vít Suchomel and Pavel Šmerk and introduced at the Language Technology for Normalisation of Less-Resourced Languages conference in 2012.

An Example of a tag in the CQL concordance search box[tag=".+01.*"] finds all nouns, e.g. сол, дар (note: please make sure that you use straight double quotation marks)
