    Dear list members,

    a week ago, I posted the following query:
    >on behalf of a colleague I would like to ask whether you know of any
    taggers for German text corpora (I've already >discovered Morphy,
    TreeTagger and Xerox).

    I would like to thank the following persons for their valuable help:

    Thorsten Brants, who drew my attention to his TnT tagger available at

    The same tagger was recommended by Chris Brew, Peter Dienes, Radu Florian
    and Helmut Schmid (who has not only developed a tagger himself but also
    informed me that the Brill Tagger has been adapted to German text corpora
    at the University of Zurich,

    Vlad V. Gojol mentioned that his tagger (demo version at is
    also suitable for German text corpora.

    Atro Voutilainen set the following response:
    >Conexor has taggers and parsers for German (as well as Italian, English,
    >French, Spanish, Swedish, Finnish, soon also Dutch). An online demo is

    Finally, Randall Jones sent a summary of responses he got to the same query
    as mine, with cc to the Corpora list (if you have trouble finding it, let
    me know so I can forward it).

    I am very grateful to everyone who took the time to answer.

    Best regards,
