Indonesian TreeTagger PoS Tagset

Indonesian tagset is available in Indonesian corpora annotated by the tool TreeTagger (with the Indonesian parameter file) developed by Helmut Schmid in the TC project at the Institute for Computational Linguistics of the University of Stuttgart.

The following table shows the Indonesian Penn TreeBank part-of-speech tagset.

An Example of a tag in the CQL concordance search box: [tag="PR"] finds all demonstrative pronouns, e.g. ini, itu, sini (note: please make sure that you use straight double quotation marks)
