In this work, we explore the use of SVMs andCRFsintheproblemofpredictingcer- tainty in sentences. We consider this as a taskoftagginguncertainty cuesincontext, for which we used lexical, wordlist-based and deep-syntactic features. Results show that the syntactic context of the tokens in conjunction with the wordlist-based fea- tures turned out to be useful in predicting uncertainty cues.
