In the Part-of-Speech Tagging task, systems are required to assign a tag, consisting of a combination of lexical category (PoS tag) and morphological features to each token in a set of sentences. This task will be akin to the Evalita 2007 Pos-Tagging evaluation task.

Participants will be provided with a development data set annotated with the Tanl tag set. The total amount of data available as development and test sets will consist of about 110.000 tokens from newspaper articles.
