Srinivas (97) enriches traditional morpho-syntactic POS tagging with syntactic information by introducing Supertags. Unfortunately, words are assigned on average a much higher number of Supertags than traditional POS. In this paper, we develop the notion of Hypertag, first introduced in Kinyon (00a) and in Kinyon (00b), which allows to factor the information contained in ~everal Supertags into a single structure and to encode flmctional information in a systematic lnanner. We show why other possible solutions based on mathematical properties of trees are unsatisfactory and also discuss the practical usefulness of this approach.
