Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Tagging Russian texts of the XIXth century has been evaluated. The causes have been determined why some words turned out to be unknown to the tagger, i.e. remained without lemmas and grammatical features. The investigation showed that the main reasons of the existence of the unknown words were as follows: 1) incompleteness of the tagger dictionary, particularly in the XIXth century lexical stock; 2) failure to tag the word-formative derivates; 3) problems with some inflexion models of Old Russian; 4) insufficiency of graphemic analysis; 5) inability of taggers to process multiwords. The results obtained provide a baseline to improve premorphological processing of Russian texts and to work out the more sophisticated approaches to morphological analysis.
