Tagger Result: what does an asterisk mean?

If a disambiguation occurs on the first word of a sentence or after a quote mark, I see an asterisk in the disambiguator log.

What does the asterisk mean? What causes it?

I’m not sure why we ever added this, it doesn’t seem so useful, but it says: there’s no whitespace directly preceding this token.

@dnaber, thanks for the clarification.
