X: other

Definition

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

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 foreign is typically used in the syntactic analysis). This usage does not extend to ordinary loan words which should be assigned a normal part-of-speech.

Example


X in other languages: [cs] [da] [en] [et] [fi] [fr] [ga] [grc] [hy] [it] [ja] [kpv] [myv] [no] [ru] [sl] [sv] [tr] [uk] [u] [urj] [yue] [zh]
