The Stuttgart-Tübingen Tagset (STTS)

The STTS is a set of 54 tags for annotating German text corpora with part-of-speech labels. It was jointly developed by the Institut für maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung of the University of Stuttgart and the Seminar für Sprachwissenschaft of the University of Tübingen.

Guidelines for the tagging of German text corpora with STTS are available as a compressed postscript and dvi document (in German).

In addition a list of German closed class words with their assignment to STTS tags is available.
