MorphAdorner / Profile

Home Page:


MorphAdorner is a Java command-line program which acts as a pipeline manager for processes performing morphological adornment of words in a text. We use the term “adornment” in preference to terms such as “annotation” or “tagging” which carry too many alternative and confusing meanings. Adornment harkens back to the medieval sense of manuscript adornment or illumination—attaching pictures and marginal comments to texts.

Currently MorphAdorner provides methods for adorning text with standard spellings, parts of speech and lemmata. MorphAdorner also provides facilities for tokenizing text, recognizing sentence boundaries, and extracting names and places.
