SAKIR

From Icelandic Parsed Historical Corpus (IcePaHC)
Jump to: navigation, search

SAKIR is often governed by the preposition FYRIR. However, that is not always the case -- then it is parsed as projecting a PP with a silent preposition, like MÓTI. Therefore, SAKIR (or SÖKUM) is always tagged as NS, projecting an NP.
