Shallow Parsing as Part-of-Speech Tagging

Treating shallow parsing as part-of-speech tagging yields results comparable with other, more elaborate approaches. Using the CoNLL 2000 training and testing material, our best model had an accuracy of 94.88%, with an overall FB1 score of 91.94%. The individual FB1 scores for NPs were 92.19%, VPs 92.70% and PPs 96.69%.
