Lexicons for Tagging

Anne Schiller, Lauri Karttunen
In this chapter we discuss the issue of constructing a lexicon which can be used in tagging. The purpose of a tagger lexicon is to provide for each token of a text its potential properties. What this means, exactly, depends on the tagging system of which the lexicon is part. The simplest type of tagger lexicon assigns to each word form one or more alternative word class tags. The methods that we present in this chapter are based on the assumption that the tagger lexicon, of whatever type and origin, is implemented as a finite-state transducer.
