X: other

Definition

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

Note that the universal guidelines recommend the usage of X for cases of code-switching where it is not possible (or meaningful) to analyze the intervening language grammatically (and where the dependency relation foreign is typically used in the syntactic analysis). The PoS tag for Italian in such cases is SW (foreign noun) and is mapped into X in the conversion.

This usage does not extend to ordinary loan words where it is assigned a normal part-of-speech.

Examples
