In the provided Salience Demo app, you can run a piece of text and use the “View Chunk Tagged Text” to see the parts of speech Salience has assigned.
- NNP: proper nouns
- JJS: superlative adjective
- JJ: regular adjective.
You can force parts of speech on certain words via a file called gluepatterns.dat.
- create a gluepatterns.dat in user\tagger.
- Taking our Best Buy example a little further, we put this line in gluepatterns.dat:
<(='Best')> (='Buy')=>NNP (='Best') <(='Buy')>=>NNP
This tells Salience to “glue” all instances of Best Buy together and tag both words as NNP, which is a proper noun.
