A tagset is a list of part-of-speech tags (POS tags for short), i.e. labels used to indicate the part of speech and sometimes also other grammatical categories (case, tense etc.) of each token in a text corpus.

Maltese part-of-speech tagset is available in Maltese corpora annotated by the MLSS (Maltese Language Software Services) part-of-speech tagger based on TnT which is an implementation of a statistical part of speech tagger created by Thorsten Brants

This is modified tagset of default TreeTagger tagset.

An Example of a tag in the CQL concordance search box[tag="NN"] finds all common nouns, e.g.  gvern, sena (note: please make sure that you use straight double quotation marks)
