Prevent Dictionary Tags from being overwritten by Stanford Tagger



I am tagging documents with the Dictionary tagger node. Afterwards, I am tagging the documents with the Stanford tagger node which overwrites my previous tags tagged by the Dictionary tagger.

How can I prevent such behaviour? I tried the option "Set named entities unmodifiable" of the Dictionary tagger node, but It doesn't changes anything.


Thanks in advance,


Ok, I learned that if multiple Taggers are used, the latter Tagger always overwrites the previous Taggers information.

(  -> "Tagger conflicts").


Hi Tim,

yes, use the Stanford Tagger first and then the Dictionary Tagger. Tags will be overrwritten only if there are conflicts.

Cheers, Kilian
