X: other


The tag X is used for words that for some reason cannot be assigned a real part-of-speech category.

A special usage of X is for cases of code-switching where it is not possible (or meaningful) to analyze the intervening language grammatically (and where the dependency relation flat is typically used in the syntactic analysis; on the morphological layer, these words should use the feature Foreign=Yes). We use also X with the the dependency relation goeswith.

This usage does not extend to ordinary loan words which should be assigned a normal part-of-speech. For example, in Նա նոր գաջեթների սիրահար է։ “He is fond of new gadgets”, գաջեթ is an ordinary NOUN.

Note that the articles, prepositions in foreign names (դը, դե, դ՚, ֆոն, դել, վան, օղլու, աբու) are also tagged X.
