Part-of-speech categories

The taxonomy below represents the part-of-speech categories and sub-categories in Afrikaans. With the exception of the "Miscellaneous" category, the taxonomy attempts to be as comprehensive as possible, with as few as possible over-lapping or ambigious nodes as possible. In principle, this taxonomy could serve as a tag ontology for an automatic part-of-speech tagger of Afrikaans, since it is also based in part on the work of Pilon (2008).
