Be aware the original POS and chunker models in cTAKES were built using text tokenized the
way cTAKES tokenizes text.  That might not work as well on text tokenized using a different

Tim, is that still true of the current POS models in Apache cTAKES?

Yes, that is exactly what I was asking!
Thank you, and sorry for not being more thorough with the questions, as I
