[en] Postag for acronyms

Should LT have a postag for acronyms? (I will add ANOVA to spelling; the closest postag is NN:U.)

That might be a good idea - at least I wouldn’t mind.
Another -probably- good extension: a postag for punctuation marks (,;.:-_?!).
In German, there is the postag “PKT” for these non-word characters and I have used it quite often to write rules.

I agree.

I like that idea.

New postag PCT available since yesterday

@Knorr, great, thank you.

Should tagset.txt contain a reference to the new postag? I thought about adding a note, but I am not sure because the PCT postag is in disambiguation, unlike all the other postags.

Well, I have copied the solution from the German disambiguation.xml. The German tagset.txt has not been modified after this extension. So, I think it’s not necessary to change tagset.txt.
