Finnish Tagtools 1.4


Persistent Identifier of this resource:

Access location:

This software package provides finnish-postag, a part-of-speech and morphology tagger for Finnish, and finnish-nertag, a named entity recogniser for Finnish.
This software is also installed in CSC's computing environment (module load finnish-tagtools).

Both tools take running text from standard input and produce tabular output (one token per line) to standard output. See --help messages for more details.

An installer is provided in the form of a Makefile. More information can be found in the README-file in the download folder.
