This paper examines the current performance of the stochastic tagger PARTS (Church 88) in handling phrasal verbs, describes a problem that arises from the statis- tical model used, and suggests a way to improve the tagger's performance. The solution involves a change in the definition of what counts as a word for the pur- pose of tagging phrasal verbs.
