1. Noun

10000 N Noun



11000 N (INFL) inflection.
The existence of this attribute indicates the occurrence of an audible morphological marking for categories like: person, number, gender, case, definiteness, etc. inflection doesn’t refer to zero morphemes or diminutive suffixes. The following rule applies: inflection is only tagged as such, if the word can also occur without the morpheme. The following tags give information about the inflection found:
11100 N (INFL) -(e)n
11200 N (INFL) -(e)t
11300 N (INFL) -e
11400 N (INFL) -(e)s
11500 N (INFL)-st
11600 N (INFL) OT Other inflectional morphology



12000 N POS Position
12100 N POS PRE-N Prenominal
For example a few books. We call few prenominal , because books is the head of the phrase, as follows from the agreement on the finite verb (there are a few books at the table).
12200 N POS N Nominal
This is the 'ordinary' use of the noun, as the head of an (argumentative) noun phrase.
12300 N POS POST-N Postnominal
For example: a bucket (of) ''blackberries. We call blackberries postnominal, because bucket is the head of the phrase, as follows from the agreement on the finite verb (There is a bucket at the table.)
12400 N POS FREE Tag for nouns that are not part of an argumentative noun phrase.
12410 N POS FREE PRED Predicative
For example: John is (a) doctor/mayor.
12420 N POS FREE ADV Adverbial
For example: Zondags gaat zij naar de kerk , '[lit:] Sundays goes she to the church'.



13000 N (CASE) Case
Case is assigned to nouns only if the flection is audible. So, nominal nouns don't get this attribute.
13100 N (CASE) (OBL) Oblique
All nouns that have audible case flection, that isn’t genitive, will be assigned the value ‘oblique’. This value can be specified as ‘accusative’ or ‘dative’. If it’s not clear whether a consituent is accusative or dative, oblique will not be specified.
13110 N (CASE) (OBL)(ACC) Accusative
13120 N (CASE) (OBL)(DAT) Dative
13200 N (CASE) (GEN) Genitive
Value for nouns with genitive flection.



14000 N Person Person
14300 N Person 3 All nouns are third person. This tag will be the default.



15000 N Number Number
15100 N Number S Singular
15200 N Number PL Plural



16000 N (GENUS) Grammatical gender
As the gender of a word is not always clear, this attribute is optional (can but need not be assigned).
16100 N (GENUS) Z Non-neuter
16110 N (GENUS) Z (M) Masculine
16120 N (GENUS) Z (F) Feminine
16200 N (GENUS) Neu Neuter



The function of a DP (determiner phrase, noun phrase) is normally not incorporated in the tagging process. However, the assignment of the values subject (SUBJ), object (D-OBJ), indirect object (I-OBJ) and prepositional object (P-OBJ) is essential in order to be able to search the database, at a stage where (full) syntactic annotation is lacking. This value is assigned to the noun.

17000 N (FUNCTION) Grammatical function
17100 N (FUNCTION) SUBJ Subject
Is assigned if the DP agrees with the finite verb in person/number.
17200 N (FUNCTION) D-OBJ Direct object
Applies when the DP is the direct object.
17300 N (FUNCTION) I-OBJ Indirect object
Is assigned when the DP is the indirect object (without a preposition).
17400 N (FUNCTION) P-OBJ Object of preposition
Applies when the DP is the complement of a preposition.
