Tagger Result: what does an asterisk mean?

(Mike Unwalla) #1

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?

(Daniel Naber) #2

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.
