The possible parses for this word have been evaulated by an experimental system that attempts to determine which parse is correct in this context. The system is composed of a number of "evaluators"--each of which uses different criteria to score the possibilities--whose votes are weighted to determine the best answer. The percentages in the table above show each evaluator's score for each form, which are then combined to determine each form's overall score.

This selection used the following evaluators:

  • Word-frequency evaluator: Scores parses based on how often the dictionary word appears in the Perseus corpus. Only used when a given form could be from more than one possible word.
  • User-voting evaluator: Scores parses based on the number of votes each one has received from users. Weighted more heavily as more users vote for a given word in a text.
  • Form frequency evaluator: Scores parses based on how often their morphological features (first-person, indicative, plural, and so on) occur among all the words in the Perseus corpus.
  • Tagger evaluator: Evaluator based on pre-computed automatic morphological tagging
  • Prior-form frequency evaluator: Evaluates forms based on the preceding word in the text; finds the most likely parse among this word's possible morphological features and the preceding word's possible features based on the frequency of each possible pair.

User votes are weighted more heavily than the other methods, which are all treated equally.
