    Exclamation Corpus Linx - parts of speech probs

    Hello everyone!

    I am working on a corpus for East African English adding parts of speech tags to the words. Can anybody help me with establishing criteria in order to determine the word class of the following items (note: they can be either of the classes listed, but i need some criteria to say in which case they belong to which class):

    like AV0(general adjective); CJS(conjunction subordinate); PRP(preposition)

    as PRP; AV0; CJS

    thanks for your help!

    umm, no there was no attachement.

    i assume you are asking for example sentences in order to establish criteria...
    ...unfortunately, i cant attach the corpus (prolly not legal to do so).

    in the meantime i came up with these criteria (not sure though, whether they can be applied without exceptions)

    like:
    AVO
    - after just
    - followed by CJS

    PRP
    - like = as

    as
    CJS
    - as =because, since, when

    PRP
    - as = like

    AV0
    - as .... as (whereby the last as is a CJS according to BNC tagging)
