NLP-04 Part-Of-Speech tagging in spaCy

POS (part-of-speech) tagging is the process of tagging tokens with POS tags. POS is a syntactic category in which every word falls into a category of its function in a sentence.

English has 9 main categories:

  • verb — Expresses an action or a state of being. E.g. jump, is, write, become
  • noun — identifies a person, a place or a thing or names of particular of one of these (pronoun). E.g. man, house, happiness
  • pronoun — can replace a noun or noun phrase. E.g. she, we, they, it
