Morphossyntactic Disambiguation for TTS Systems

The purpose of this paper is to present the development of a morphossyntactic disambiguation system (or part-of-speech tagging system) which is intended to be used as? a component of a Text-to-Speech (TTS) system for European Portuguese. In the development of the tagger, we compared two approaches: a probabilistic-based approach and a hybrid approach. Besides comparing these two approaches, this paper considers the? effects of the different classes of errors on the performance of the complete TTS? system
