We present a novel approach to noun phrase lemmatisation where the main phase is cast as a tagging problem. The idea draws on the observation that the lemmatisation of almost all Polish noun phrases may be decomposed into trans- formation of singular words (tokens) that make up each phrase. We perform eval- uation, which shows results similar to those obtained earlier by a rule-based sys- tem, while our approach allows to separate chunking from lemmatisation.
