A simple part-of-speech tagging model for Hausa in Boko orthography, for use with the freely available TreeTagger: http://www.cis.uni-muenchen.de/~schmid/tools/TreeTagger/

Portmanteau tags are used in orthographic words fusing two part of speech categories (see below).

  • FUT future marker (za)
  • INTJ interjection
  • LINK linking na or ta ('of')
  • N noun
  • NEG negation
  • NUM numeral
  • PAC person-aspect complex (e.g. ya-)
  • PDEM demonstrative
  • PIND indefinite pronoun
  • PINT interrogative
  • PPOS possessive pronoun
  • PPRS personal pronoun
  • PREL relative pronoun
  • PROG progressive person aspect complex (e.g. ina-, nake-)
  • PRP preposition
  • PTC particle
  • PUNCT punctuation
  • QUANT quantifier
  • V verb

Portmanteau tags

  • FUT_PAC fused future + PAC marker (zai, zan)
  • NEG_PAC PAC fused with negation (e.g. ban)
  • PAC_V fused PAC and verb form (e.g. yayi, spelled together)

  • PPRS_PROG fused personal pronoun + progressive PAC (shike)
  • PREL_PAC fused relative + PAC (daya)
  • PREL_PROG fused relative + progressive PAC (dake)
