Persian Language Model for HunPoS: TagPer

HunPoS (Halacsy et al, 2007) is an open source reimplementation of the statistical part-of-speech tagger Trigrams'n Tags, also called TnT (Brants, 2000) allowing the user to tune the tagger by using different feature settings. TagPer (Seraji, 2015, Chapter 4, pp. 91-96) was developed by training HunPos on Uppsala Persian Corpus (UPC), which is a large, freely available Persian corpus. The corpus is a modified version of the Bijankhan corpus with additional sentence segmentation and consistent tokenization consisting of over 2,7 million words and is annotated with morpho-syntactic and partly semantic features.


The tool is developed by Mojgan Seraji ( ) and licensed under GNU General Public License . It is used for part-of-speech tagging of Persian texts and can be downloaded below:

Start using TagPer

Before you start using the language model, you will first need to download HunPoS. Then you can take the model and tag your text using the following command line:
prompt> hunpos-tag model_TagPer < input_file.txt > output_file.txt
