  Description     : memory-based tagger-generator and tagger for natural language processing

 MBT is a memory-based tagger-generator and tagger in one. The tagger-generator
 part can generate a sequence tagger on the basis of a training set of tagged
 sequences; the tagger part can tag new sequences. MBT can, for instance, be
 used to generate part-of-speech taggers or chunkers for natural language
 processing.  Features:
  * Tagger generation: tagged text in, tagger out,
  * Optional feedback loop: feed previous tag decision back to input of next
  * Easily customizable feature representation; can incorporate user-provided
  * Automatic generation of separate sub-taggers for known words and unknown
  * Can make use of full algorithmic parameters of TiMBL.
 If you do scientific research in natural language processing, MBT will
 likely be of use to you.


MBT depends upon TiMBL, see Bug#605913: ITP: timbl -- Tilburg Memory Based

The current MBT upstream release is available from
