Unknown words are inevitable at any step of analysis in natural language pro- cessing. Wc propose a method to ex- tract words from a corl)us and estimate the probability that each word belongs to given parts of speech (POSs), using a distributional analysis. Our experiments have shown that this method is etfective for inferring the POS of unknown words.
