A representative, tagged corpus of Scottish Gaelic, divided into 8 registers (4 spoken, 4 written) of approximately 10k words each. The corpus is presented as individual txt files.
The corpus was hand-tagged by Lamb, Arbuthnot and Naismith and separately verified by them. It uses the Brown format tag separators ('/': e.g. 'agus/Cc') and an annotation scheme derived from the Irish PAROLE tagset (see Uí Dhonnchadha, E. and van Genabith, J. 2006. A Part-of-Speech tagger for Irish using finite state morphology and constraint grammar disambiguation. Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2006), 2241-2244.).
The annotation scheme is described in a PDF included with the data: Lamb, W. and Naismith, S (2014) Scottish Gaelic Part-of-Speech Annotation Guidelines.
