Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1996

In this paper, we want to describe a tag- ger/lemmatiser for Dutch medical voca- bulary, which consists of a full-form dic- tionary and a morphological recogniser for unknown vocabulary coupled to an expert system-like disambiguation mo- dule. Attention is also paid to the main datastructures: a lexical database and feature bundles implemented as direc- ted acyclic graphs. Some evaluation re- sults are presented as well. The tag- ger/lemmatiser currently functions as a lexical front-end for a syntactic parser. For pure tagging/lemmatising purposes, a reduced tagset (not suited for sentence analysis) can be used as well.
