- QUOTE: Part-of-speech tagging (POS tagging) is a process in which each word in a text is assigned its appropriate morphosyntactic category (for example noun-singular, verb-past, adjective, pronoun-personal, and the like). It therefore provides information about both morphology (structure of words) and syntax (structure of sentences). This disambiguation process is determined both by constraints from the lexicon (what are the possible categories for a word?) and by constraints from the context in which the word occurs (which of the possible categories is the right one in this context?). For example, a word like table can be a noun-singular, but also a verb-present (as in I table this motion). This is lexical knowledge. It is the context of the word that should be used to decide which of the possible categories is the correct one.
