tool: CLAWS Tagger

A software tool for performing Parts-of-Speech (POS) tagging - the classification of words into one or more categories based upon its definition, relationship with other words, or other context - on a body of text. CLAWS (Constituent Likelihood Automatic Word-tagging System) uses several methods to identify parts of speech, most notably a system called Hidden Markov models (HMMs) which involve counting cases and making a table of the probabilities of certain sequences of words. For example, if an article and verb appear together, the next word is more likely to be a preposition, article, or noun, rather than another verb.
