Subject Re: ClearNLP POSTagger

Would it be possible to run some benchmarks so we know the performance 
difference between the two?

The OpenNLP POS Tagger can be customized, currently is possible to 
replace the feature generation,
it can probably be optimized for the medical domain, the default feature 
generation is tuned for the news domain.
Replacing the learning algorithm is currently not possible, but we will 
work on that for the next release.

Do you use a tag dictionary? Maybe it is possible to generate something 
from the existing dictionaries already
used by cTAKES.

 It is fairly simple and I have the code ready (also trained on the same data as the dep parser-
MiPaq/SHARP) to be checked-in.  What does the folks think:

which is a more advanced learning algorithm than maximum entropy used by OpenNLP."
